Security - Content Localization on AWS


When you build systems on AWS infrastructure, security responsibilities are shared between you and AWS. This shared model reduces your operational burden because AWS operates, manages, and controls the components including the host operating system, the virtualization layer, and the physical security of the facilities in which the services operate.

Server-side encryption

AWS highly recommends that customers encrypt sensitive data in transit and at rest. This solution automatically encrypts media files and metadata at rest with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) Server-Side Encryption (SSE). The Media Insights Engine solution's Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topics and Amazon DynamoDB tables are also encrypted at rest using SSE.

Amazon CloudFront

This solution deploys a static website hosted in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket. To help reduce latency and improve security, this solution includes an Amazon CloudFront distribution with an origin access identity, which is a CloudFront user that provides public access to the solution’s website bucket contents. For more information, refer to Restricting Access to Amazon S3 Content by Using an Origin Access Identity in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.
