Amazon API Gateway supports secured connectivity between REST APIs and Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) in additional regions. Customers can now isolate traffic between their Amazon VPCs and REST APIs from the internet using Private API and VPC Link features provided by API Gateway. These features are now available in AWS GovCloud (US-West), EU (Paris), EU (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.

Private APIs enable you to securely expose REST APIs to resources only within your VPC or to those connected to your data centers via AWS Direct Connect. If you have existing Edge Optimized or Regional APIs in API Gateway, you can convert them to Private APIs. VPC Links feature allows you to create REST APIs in front of your secured VPC resources without exposing them to the internet. Visit our documentation to learn more about Private APIs and Private Integrations in Amazon API Gateway.

You can use the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or AWS SDKs to create Private APIs and Private integrations using VPC Links. For more information about Amazon API Gateway, visit our product page.
