New Features

Feature Description
Configurable cipher support

You can now select a pre-defined set of ciphers or specify your own list of ciphers to use for SSL termination at the Elastic Load Balancer. NOTE: The AWS Management Console currently supports specifying a single cipher set for the Elastic Load Balancer, while the API and CLI tools provide full access to specify the ciphers on a per-listener basis. For more information, see Elastic Load Balancing Security Features.

Back-end SSL

Application servers can now accept secure communication from the corresponding Elastic Load Balancer. NOTE: The AWS Management Console currently supports specifying a single certificate for all secure listeners, while the API and CLI tools provide full access to specify the certificate on a per-listener basis. For more information, see Elastic Load Balancing Security Features

Secure health checks

In cases where HTTPS is required for all traffic entering the back-end server, Elastic Load Balancing can now perform health checks using HTTPS. For more information, see How to Create a LoadBalancer.

Back-end server authentication

You can create a white list of public keys and associate them with your back-end servers. Elastic Load Balancing authenticates your back-end servers with the public keys in your white list and communicates only with back-end servers that pass this authentication check. For more information, see Elastic Load Balancing Security Features
