Amazon Pinpoint now supports encrypted SNS topics as destinations for incoming SMS text messages. This enables you to add another layer of protection when using Amazon Pinpoint for two-way SMS text messaging. When you enable two-way SMS messaging, you can publish inbound messages to encrypted SNS topics for retrieval and processing. Amazon SNS uses an AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) key to encrypt the messages that it sends to these topics.

Data in Amazon Pinpoint is encrypted in transit and at rest. When you submit data to Amazon Pinpoint, it encrypts the data as it receives and stores it. When you retrieve data from Amazon Pinpoint, it uses modern security protocols to transmit the data to you. By using encrypted SNS topics, you can add an additional layer of security by encrypting the data with a key that you control. This feature is especially useful for applications that handle private and sensitive data.
