AWS now supports DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) signing on public zones for Amazon Route 53 and validation for Amazon Route 53 Resolver. DNSSEC is a specification that provides data integrity assurance for DNS and helps customers meet compliance mandates (for example, FedRAMP and security standards such as NIST). When you enable DNSSEC signing for a […]

CloudFront now Supports ECDSA Certificates for HTTPS Connections to Origins

See how you can now use Amazon CloudFront to negotiate HTTPS connections to origins using Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA). ECDSA uses smaller keys that are faster, yet, just as secure, as the older RSA algorithm. The smaller keys will also increase the number of TLS handshakes that your origins can process per second, thereby saving compute cycles and reducing your cost of cryptography.
