EC2 Image Builder can now produce and distribute encrypted AMIs

Posted on: Jul 6, 2020

EC2 Image Builder is now integrated with AWS Key Management Service (KMS) and enables customers to build and distribute Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) that are encrypted with Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) encryption. 

This capability helps customers achieve security compliance by encrypting both EBS data and boot volumes using KMS managed keys. Customers can create encrypted AMIs from both - unencrypted and encrypted AMIs with either the same or a different key.
