Service Endpoints - AWS GovCloud (US)

Service Endpoints

If you access AWS GovCloud (US-West) or AWS GovCloud (US-East) by using the command line interface (CLI) or programmatically by using the APIs, you need the AWS GovCloud (US-West) or AWS GovCloud (US-East) Region endpoints. These HTTPS endpoints are referred to as the control plane used to configure AWS services.

If you require FIPS 140-2 compliance you should use the FIPS Endpoints linked below. Any TLS Termination performed on the data plane such as Application Load Balancer HTTPS Listeners and RDS SSL do not use FIPS 140-2 validated modules, unless otherwise noted. For more information about FIPS 140-2, see "Cryptographic Module Validation Program" on the NIST Computer Security Resource Center website.
