Amazon Neptune now allows you to use HTTPS to encrypt data in transit between your graph database clients and the Neptune service endpoints. This enhancement uses the industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 protocol to encrypt all data sent to and from connected clients. 

Now you can connect to Neptune’s Gremlin server and SPARQL 1.1 Protocol REST endpoints using HTTPS. You don't need to manage your own certificates. Neptune automatically provides SSL certificates for your Neptune database instances. You can see how to connect using HTTPS in the latest Amazon Neptune documentation.

Amazon Neptune’s HTTPS support is available at no additional cost in all Neptune supported regions. To learn more about Amazon Neptune, please see our product page and documentation. See the AWS Region Table for complete regional availability information.
