AWS Cloud Map now offers Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 compliant endpoints in the US and Canada commercial Regions to help you protect sensitive information. These endpoints terminate Transport Layer Security (TLS) sessions using a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic software module, making it easier for you to use AWS Cloud Map for certain regulated workloads. 

To use this new capability, choose the FIPS endpoint option when creating your AWS Cloud Map namespaces and services. FIPS 140-2 validated endpoints are available in US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (Northern California), and Canada (Central) AWS Regions.  

To learn more, please refer to the AWS Cloud Map documentation or see the FIPS Endpoints page. To see all of the Regions where AWS Cloud Map is available, see the AWS Region table.
