Secure Connections

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a cryptographic protocol that provides security for online communications. Amazon Silk supports TLS communication between the device client on Fire devices and origin servers. For enhanced privacy and security, TLS traffic is not routed through Silk remote proxies in the Amazon Cloud, and we don't collect any metrics regarding web page resources downloaded using TLS connections. Amazon Silk currently supports up to TLS 1.2 for all Fire devices.
