New features of AWS IoT Core, including Configurable Endpoints and Custom Domains, as well as enhancement to AWS IoT Core Custom Authentication, Custom Authorizer for MQTT Connections, make it easy to transition from self-managed infrastructure to fully managed AWS IoT services so you can improve scalability and reliability with few changes to your application code and minimal to no impact to devices already using your services. 

AWS IoT Core now enables customers to customize the behavior of their data endpoints using a new Configurable Endpoints feature and new Custom Authentication enhancements. Customers can preserve the flexibility to support old behaviors for brownfield devices as they migrate their IoT applications to AWS IoT Core, as well as roll out new functionality to newer or more capable devices—all with no disruption to the end user.  

The first two customization options supported by Configurable Endpoints are Custom Domains and Custom Authorizers, which enable customers to maintain both the domain name and authentication mechanisms their devices will use to connect to AWS IoT Core. With Custom Domains, customers can have multiple Configurable Endpoints per account with their existing domain names and associated server certificates. By attaching a Custom Authorizer to Configurable Endpoint, customers can take advantage of several new Custom Authorizer enhancements including the ability to use Custom Authorizers for MQTT connections.  

These new AWS IoT Core features and enhancements are now available in beta in the US East (N. Virginia) region. You can view our blog post to learn more or visit our developer guide to get started. 

AWS IoT Core is a managed cloud service that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT Core can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely. With AWS IoT Core, your applications can keep track of and communicate with all your devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected.
