Amazon MQ Adds Support for AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS), Improving Encryption Capabilities
Amazon MQ now supports the AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) to create and manage keys for at-rest encryption of customer data in Amazon MQ. Amazon MQ handles the encryption and decryption seamlessly, so you don’t have to change your applications to access your data. When you create a broker, you can now select the KMS key used to encrypt your data from the following three options: a KMS key in the Amazon MQ service account, a KMS key in your account that Amazon MQ creates and manages, or a KMS key in your account that you create and manage. In addition to encryption at rest, all data transferred between Amazon MQ and client applications is securely transmitted using TLS/SSL.
