AWS CloudFormation now supports AWS PrivateLink , enabling you to use CloudFormation APIs inside of your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and route data between your VPC and CloudFormation entirely within the AWS network.

With AWS PrivateLink, you can provision and use VPC endpoints to access supported services hosted in the AWS Cloud. AWS PrivateLink is a purpose-built technology designed to access AWS services in a highly available and scalable manner, while keeping all the network traffic within the AWS network. By using CloudFormation with Amazon VPC endpoints, your VPC resources can communicate with CloudFormation within the AWS network, which helps you meet your requirements to limit public internet connectivity.

CloudFormation support for AWS PrivateLink is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), Canada (Central), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), and South America (Sao Paulo) Regions.

For more information about PrivateLink, see Accessing Services Through AWS PrivateLink in the Amazon VPC User Guide. For more information on how to create a VPC endpoint, see Interface VPC Endpoints (AWS PrivateLink) in the AWS CloudFormation user guide.
