Amazon CloudFront Gets Security

An HTTPS connection will in future work from its S3 storage service through to the user’s desktop

Amazon has added encryption to CloudFront, its content delivery service, complements of an HTTPS connection that’ll work from its S3 storage service through to the user’s desktop.

It says it’s cut the price on CloudFront HTTP requests by 25% to $0.0075 per 10,000 requests and is charging $0.01 per 10,000 HTTPS requests plus the fees for data transfers and storage.

The company has also added a new edge location in New York City so users requesting content from New York and the northeastern United States should see better performance.
