** AWS GovCloud (US) uses FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules to support compliance with FIPS 140-2 in all our HTTPS endpoints except:

  • The non-FIPS alternative for Amazon S3: s3-us-gov-west-1.amazonaws.com

  • The AWS Key Management Service endpoint does not yet support FIPS 140-2.

When using the endpoints, note the following:

  • If you use the AWS CLI or SDK for Python with Amazon SQS, you can also use the following legacy endpoint: us-gov-west-1.queue.amazonaws.com

  • Amazon S3 has the following website endpoint:
