Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates are issued and managed through Amazon Web Services, and HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is enabled. We score an A+ rating on Qualys SSL Labs tests.

Key management

Amazon Web Services (AWS) stores and manages data cryptography keys in its redundant and globally distributed Key Management Service (KMS). AWS KMS is a secure and resilient service that uses hardware security modules that have been validated under FIPS 140-2, or are in the process of being validated, to protect your keys.
