Encryption of Data at Rest - Encrypting File Data with Amazon Elastic File System

Encryption of Data at Rest

AWS provides the tools for you to create an encrypted file system that encrypts all of your data and metadata at rest using an industry standard AES-256 encryption algorithm . An encrypted file system is designed to handle encryption and decryption automatically and transparently, so you don’t have to modify your applications. If your organization is subject to corporate or regulatory policies that require encryption of data and metadata at rest, we recommend that you create an encrypted file system.
