Credentials - AWS GovCloud (US)


If you use CloudFront with AWS GovCloud (US), be sure that you use the correct credentials:

  • To use CloudFront with your AWS GovCloud (US) resources, you must have an AWS GovCloud (US) account. If you don't have an account, see Signing Up for AWS GovCloud (US) for more information.

  • To set up CloudFront, sign in to the CloudFront console by using your standard AWS credentials. You cannot use your AWS GovCloud (US) account credentials to sign in to the standard AWS Management Console.

  • It is important to note that CloudFront is located outside of the AWS GovCloud (US) boundary and customers should not enter or store ITAR-controlled data in the service.
