Starting today, HTTPS client support in Amazon FreeRTOS is generally available. You can now use the HTTP/HTTPS protocol to easily connect your microcontroller-based IoT devices running Amazon FreeRTOS to AWS IoT and download files to your devices.  

Amazon FreeRTOS is an IoT operating system for microcontrollers that extends the FreeRTOS kernel with software libraries for security, connectivity, and updateability to make small, low-powered edge devices easy to program, deploy, secure, connect, and manage. Amazon FreeRTOS includes libraries that help you connect your microcontroller-based devices to the cloud using MQTT-based messaging, and now also using HTTPS.  

You can get started by downloading source code via GitHub or the Amazon FreeRTOS console. You can test your ported Amazon FreeRTOS code using AWS IoT Device Tester v1.4.0. Refer to the blog, Amazon FreeRTOS User Guide, or the Amazon FreeRTOS website for more information.
