    I was doing the practice exams and noticed this question seems incorrect.

    Category: DBS – Database Security

    A government agency is storing confidential user data in an Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL DB cluster. The Database Specialist needs to ensure that all communications to the database are encrypted, and any non-SSL connection requests are blocked.

    What must be done to satisfy this requirement properly?

    The right answer is:

    Set the rds.force_ssl parameter in the DB parameter group of the Aurora cluster to 1.

    However, the question is about Aurora, not RDS Postgresql. Aurora does not have the rds.force_ssl parameter.

    My bad.

    It does have the rds.force_ssl parameter. I was looking into the Aurora Mysql Documentation

    Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL parameters – Amazon Aurora

    Weird the Aurora MySQL does not offer this option.

      No worries, Henrique. Thanks for clarifying.
