You can now easily generate protected HLS streams with Amazon Elastic Transcoder and deliver them with Amazon CloudFront. With content protection for HLS, Elastic Transcoder uses encryption keys supplied by you, or generates keys on your behalf. Both methods use the AWS Key Management Service to protect the security of your keys.

There are no additional Amazon Elastic Transcoder or Amazon CloudFront charges for using these new encryption options. Standard AWS Key Management Service charges apply.
