AWS App Mesh launches support for end to end encryption

Posted on: Mar 16, 2020

Customers can now use AWS App Mesh to encrypt traffic between services of their application without any changes to their application code. App Mesh works with ACM or with a customer managed certificate to negotiate TLS encrypted sessions between Envoy proxies of mesh services.  

Customers may have security and compliance requirements to ensure that all traffic between services is encrypted. They can now use AWS App Mesh to automatically originate and terminate TLS using proxies deployed with their services. App Mesh can either distribute certificates from ACM Private Certificate Authority or use a customer-provided certificate. Using this feature allows customers to ensure secure and trusted connectivity to services.

For more details about the feature, see our documentation or read our blog.
