Infrastructure security in AWS Global Accelerator

As a managed service, AWS Global Accelerator is protected by the AWS global network security procedures that are described by the resources on the Best Practices for Security, Identity, & Compliance page.

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