AWS IoT Device Management customers use Secure Tunneling to securely access and troubleshoot remote devices located behind a restricted firewall. Now, customers can make concurrent client connections to a single device over a secure tunnel using the new multiplexing capability. Multiplexing enables customers to perform more advanced device troubleshooting, such as modifying parameters via a web application on the device while simultaneously issuing remote shell commands to verify the device is working properly.
Secure Tunneling provides customers a secure connection between source and destination devices that is brokered through a cloud proxy service on AWS. To provide secure bi-directional communication between each device, tunnels are authenticated with the cloud proxy service and data transmitted through the tunnel is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS).
