AWS Security Essentials – VPC Endpoints and Securing S3
AWS S3 and DynamoDB are fantastic managed services. They allow you to focus on what's important while AWS focuses on the backend processes. Unfortunately, due to these services being managed by AWS, they require traffic to leave your protected VPC to be accessed. Enter VPC Endpoints! VPC Endpoints allow you to create endpoints within your VPC that keep the traffic on a private link between your VPC resources and these AWS Services. Accessing DynamodDB and S3 privately using your own VPC CIDR range is crucial to maintaing a secure environment that is resistant to hackers and data thieves. In this learning activity, you will configure a VPC Endpoint and utilize encryption to ensure your data is secure.
