Overview of Amazon Redshift Security

The security arraignments of Amazon Redshift system are very different from any type of security of Amazon Redshift. As well as the system security what about we will discuss here, Amazon Redshift includes the following features to deal with the security:

  • Credentials of sign-in — The privileges of the AWS account deal with how a user can access the console of Amazon Redshift Management.
  • Access to Amazon Redshift Management — To manage the access of particular features of Amazon Redshift, there are great features available. There is the Identity and Access Management (IAM) account.
  • Groups of cluster security — The group(s) of cluster security is defined and associated with a particular cluster to provide the inbound access of an cluster of Amazon Redshift to any user.
  • VPC — A cluster is launched in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to manage access to any clusters via an environment of virtual networking.
  • Encryption of a Cluster — At the same time as launching a cluster, you can allow encrypting of cluster. It will allow data encryption in all the tables.
  • Connections of SSL — For encryption of the connection among a cluster and a SQL client, one can apply the encryption of secure sockets layer (SSL).
  • Encryption of load data — For encryption of the files of table load data while they are sent to Amazon S3, there are available two types of encryption. You can opt for server or client side encryption, both are applicable. While you load the encrypted data from server, Amazon S3 deals with decryption clearly. While you load the encrypted data from client, the AWS redshift security perform encryption as you load the table.
  • Data during loading and uploading— For security of the data while loading and uploading the data in AWS cloud, the system applies the hardware SSL acceleration for different data management operations.
