Amazon ElastiCache for Memcached now supports encryption of data in transit using Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.2. When using encryption in transit, all network traffic between your clients and Memcached cluster are encrypted.
You can easily set up in-transit encryption by enabling it when creating your Memcached cluster via the Amazon Web Services Management Console, Amazon CLI or the Amazon SDK. ElastiCache automatically manages the issuance, renewal, and expiration of your TLS certificates. TLS support was also added for Memcached PHP and Java clients, both available for download from the Amazon Web Services Management Console for ElastiCache.
Encryption of data in transit for ElastiCache for Memcached is supported when using version 1.6.12 and above, and is now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, at no additional cost.
To get started, create a new Memcached cluster using the Amazon Web Services Management Console for ElastiCache. For more information, see the ElastiCache for Memcached 1.6.12 release notes and the encryption in transit section in the ElastiCache documentation.
