Amazon Web Services: Overview of Security Processes
Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers a highly scalable cloud computing platform with high availability and dependability, and the flexibility to enable customers to build a wide range of applications. The issues of end-to-end security and end-to-end privacy within the cloud computing world are more sophisticated than within a single data center not facing the Internet. Ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer's systems and data is of the utmost importance to AWS, as is maintaining trust and confidence. This document is intended to answer customer questions such as "How does AWS help me ensure my data is secure?" Specifically, AWS physical and operational security processes are described for network and infrastructure under AWS' management, as well as service-specific security implementations.
