Today, we are pleased to announce the general availability of an IoT Device Management feature, browser-based SSH (secure shell) using Secure Tunneling. Secure Tunneling provides customers a secure connection between source and destination devices that are brokered through a cloud proxy service on Amazon Web Services. To provide secure bi-directional communication between devices, tunnels are authenticated with the cloud proxy service and data transmitted through the tunnel is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS). With the browser-based SSH, customers can open a tunnel SSH session directly from the Amazon Web Services console through an embedded CLI without the need for a local proxy. This feature improves the onboarding experience significantly because customers no longer need to install a local proxy on the operators' device. This streamlined experience allows customers to easily scale their use of secure tunneling for remote tasks such as troubleshooting or conducting routine operational maintenance.

The browser-based SSH are available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more about Secure Tunneling and the browser-based SSH, read the Amazon IoT Device Management Secure Tunneling documentation and the browser-based SSH documentation.
