Starting today, AWS Security Token Service supports AWS PrivateLink in US East (Virginia), US East (Ohio), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions, enabling you to route data between your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and Security Token Service entirely within the AWS network. 

AWS Security Token Service is a web service that enables you to request temporary, limited-privilege credentials you can use to access your AWS resources. By using Security Token Service with Amazon VPC endpoints, you can now keep credential-related, encrypted communication within the AWS network and help meet your compliance and regulatory requirements to limit public internet connectivity. You can also use VPC endpoint policies to control access to Security Token Service resources in your network. 

Support for AWS PrivateLink in AWS Security Token Service is available in the following regions:

• US East (N. Virginia)
• US East (Ohio)
• US West (Oregon)
• EU (Ireland)
• Asia Pacific (Tokyo)
