Expert Series: Scott Hogg on Encryption with AWS

Scott Hogg – Using Encryption with Amazon Web Services

The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) security guidance emphasizes the importance of using encryption in the cloud.  This presentation will cover all the ways to use encryption to secure data in transit, at rest, and in use within AWS.

Encryption is a fundamental concept represented prominently in the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Security Guidance, their Cloud Control Matrix (CCM) and the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ).  Cloud customers must preserve the confidentiality of their data when it is outside their physical control within a cloud service provider’s infrastructure.  Encryption gives the customer control over the data and only authorized systems and applications and users with the key can access the information.

This presentation covers the concepts and provides actual demonstration of using encryption to secure data in transit, at rest, and in use within the Amazon Web Services Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud environment.  Topics covered in this presentation and live demonstration will be: encryption with Simple Storage Service (S3), encryption of Elastic Block Storage (EBS), Key Management Service (KMS), Relational Database Service (RDS) encryption, AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) and encrypted web services using HTTPS/TLS, and secure management access.
