Amazon Step Functions now supports Amazon PrivateLink, allowing you to access Amazon Step Functions from VPC-enabled Amazon Lambda functions and other Amazon Web Services services without traversing the public internet. By using Amazon PrivateLink, you can access Step Functions while keeping your network traffic within the Amazon network using interface VPC endpoints. Your network architecture is significantly simplified as you no longer need to use an Internet Gateway, Network Address Translation (NAT) devices, or firewall proxies to connect to Amazon Step Functions.
Using Step Functions, you can create application workflows that connect and coordinate multiple Amazon Web Services services. Amazon Step Functions support for Amazon PrivateLink is available in all regions in China where Amazon Step Functions is available.

- You can attach policies to VPC endpoints to control access to your state machines. Please refer to VPC endpoint policies for Step Functions in the Amazon Step Functions Developer Guide.
