Cryptography serves to protect data from tampering and from being exposed to unauthorized parties. AWS supports the creation and management of encryption keys and digital security certificates. In this course, discover how cryptography can provide data integrity and confidentiality. Then, examine the public key infrastructure (PKI) hierarchy and how certificates can be used to secure AWS services. Next, work with AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) to manage encryption keys and AWS Certificate Manager to create a private certificate authority (CA) and issue PKI certificates. Finally, practice renewing certificates, enabling HTTPS, and encrypting an EBS volume. This course can be used to prepare for exam SAA-C03, AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate.
