AWS Directory Service enhances security between AWS applications and Active Directory with secure LDAP improvements

AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (AWS Managed Microsoft AD) and AD Connector now communicate more securely with self-managed Active Directory when using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). With support for client-side LDAP signing and client-side secure LDAP (LDAPS), customers using AWS Directory Service-enabled applications like Amazon WorkSpaces and AWS Single Sign-On can now better protect their organization’s identity data and meet security requirements.
