You can now use Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) server-side encryption (SSE) integrated with the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) in the US East (N. Virginia) region. Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service for reliably communicating between distributed software components and microservices – at any scale. You can use Amazon SQS to take advantage of the scale, cost, and operational benefits of a managed messaging service. The addition of server-side encryption allows you to transmit sensitive data with the increased security of using encrypted queues.
