Application connection coming from AWS to our local SQL Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Our Application team is considering moving their apps to AWS cloud and were wondering would it be just for our Network team to open up a white-list IP address firewall and that all connections & traffic going in & out of local SQL Server 2008 are encrypted by default?

    Or if not what would be needed to ensure all connections & traffic going in & out of local SQL Server 2008 get encrypted where if not SQL Server would reject the app's connections?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Archana,


    Which type of encryption did you use? If you have only enabled the firewall, you can add the IP address of AWS server to the white-list of the server which hosts SQL Server.


    If you have enabled SSL, you will need to install the certificate exported from SQL Server on the AWS server.


    Best Regards,
