Elastic Load Balancer – Console Updates and IPv6 Support for 2 Additional Regions

You can now manage the listeners, SSL certificates, and SSL ciphers for an existing Elastic Load Balancer from within the AWS Management Console. This enhancement makes it even easier to get started with Elastic Load Balancing and simpler to maintain a highly available application using Elastic Load Balancing. While this functionality has been available via the API and command line tools, many customers told us that it was critical to be able to use the AWS Console to manage these settings on an existing load balancer.

With this update, you can add a new listener with a front-end protocol/port and back-end protocol/port:

If the listener uses encryption (HTTPS or SSL listeners), then you can create or select the SSL certificate:

In addition to selecting or creating the certificate, you can now update the SSL protocols and ciphers presented to clients:

We have also expanded IPv6 support for Elastic Load Balancing to include the US West (Northern California) and US West (Oregon) regions.
