Building a Blog Part 5 - Securing an S3 Website April 23, 2016

Amazon Certificate Manager Since we’re hosting our site on Amazon’s S3 - we can take advantage of some other AWS products to secure or website, namely: Amazon Cloudfront Amazon Certificate Manager These services give us a few useful features for our simple blog: Free SSL/TLS certificates managed by Amazon (Using Let’s Encrypt with S3 is awkward since there is no traditional web server to secure) Global CDN - Cloudfront gives us global availablility for our S3 assets - people around the world get a fast user experiance.
