Without the AWS Encryption SDK, you might spend more effort on building an encryption solution than on the core functionality of your application.

The AWS Encryption SDK answers questions like the following for you:
  • Which encryption algorithm should I use?
  • How, or in which mode, should I use that algorithm?
  • How do I generate the encryption key?
  • How do I protect the encryption key, and where should I store it?
  • How can I make my encrypted data portable?
  • How do I ensure that the intended recipient can read my encrypted data?
  • How can I ensure my encrypted data is not modified between the time it is written and when it is read?
