Lambda event sources - Security Overview of AWS Lambda

Lambda event sources

Lambda integrates with more than 140 AWS services via direct integration and the Amazon EventBridge event bus. The commonly used Lambda event sources are:

With these event sources, you can:

  • Use AWS IAM to manage access to the service and resources securely.

  • Encrypt your data at-rest. All services encrypt data in transit.

  • Access from your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud using VPC endpoints (powered by AWS PrivateLink).

  • Use Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights to collect, report, and alarm on metrics.

  • Use AWS CloudTrail to log, continuously monitor, and retain account activity related to actions across your AWS infrastructure, providing a complete event history of actions taken through the AWS Management Console, AWS SDKs, command line tools, and other AWS services.
