Internetwork Traffic Privacy - Amazon Aurora

Internetwork Traffic Privacy

Connections are protected both between Amazon Aurora and on-premises applications and between Amazon Aurora and other AWS resources within the same AWS Region.

Traffic Between Service and On-Premises Clients and Applications

You have two connectivity options between your private network and AWS:

You get access to Amazon Aurora through the network by using AWS-published API operations. Clients must support Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0. We recommend TLS 1.2. Clients must also support cipher suites with Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS), such as Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (DHE) or Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral (ECDHE). Most modern systems such as Java 7 and later support these modes. Additionally, you must sign requests using an access key ID and a secret access key that are associated with an IAM principal. Or you can use the AWS Security Token Service (STS) to generate temporary security credentials to sign requests.
