You can now use Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) server-side encryption (SSE) integrated with the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) in 13 additional regions. The addition of SSE helps you to protect sensitive data with encrypted queues.

The additional regions are: Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Osaka, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, and Paris), South America (Sao Paulo), and US West (N. California). Including previously announced regions, US West (Oregon) and US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), SSE is now available in 16 regions.

There are no additional charges for using Amazon SQS encrypted queues. You can use Amazon SQS to exchange sensitive data between applications using SSE integrated with the AWS Key Management Service (KMS). You are only charged for each AWS KMS request. For more information, see How Do I Estimate My AWS KMS Usage Costs? in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.
