TLS Termination for Network Load Balancers
New TLS Termination
Today we are simplifying the process of building secure web applications by giving you the ability to make use of TLS (Transport Layer Security) connections that terminate at a Network Load Balancer (you can think of TLS as providing the “S” in HTTPS). Using TLS Termination
You can create a Network Load Balancer and make use of TLS termination in minutes! Then I click Create in the Network Load Balancer area:
I enter a name (MyLB2) and choose TLS (Secure TCP) as the Load Balancer Protocol:
Then I choose one or more Availability Zones, and optionally choose and Elastic IP address for each one. If I choose TLS, communication is encrypted; this allows you to make use of complete end-to-end encryption in transit:
The remainder of the setup process proceeds as usual, and I can start using my Network Load Balancer right away.
