Amazon MSK Connect now supports Private DNS hostnames for enhanced security. With Private DNS hostname support in MSK Connect, you can configure connectors to reference public or private domain names. Connectors will use the DNS servers configured in your VPC’s DHCP option set to resolve domain names. You can now use MSK Connect to privately connect with databases, data warehouses and other resources in your VPC to comply with your security needs.
