Today Amazon announced a free enhancement to its Simple Storage Service (S3) which will allow users to encrypt their data on upload, making S3 a secure storage site in the cloud.
From the announcement:
Today we’re excited to announce a new encryption feature, Amazon S3 Server Side Encryption (SSE). Amazon S3 SSE provides you the ability to encrypt data stored at rest in Amazon S3. With Amazon S3 SSE, you can encrypt data on upload simply by adding an additional request header when writing the object to Amazon S3. Decryption happens automatically when data is retrieved.
