Security best practices for AWS RDS 

There are a few best practices that have been specified by AWS for RDS services. They are:

  • Run your RDS under VPC for greater network access control
  • Use an IAM policy to grant a specific permission to users to perform actions on databases
  • Use a security group to control and manage the traffic to and from the database
  • Use SSL for connection encryption
  • Use RDS encryption to secure your database instances and snapshots at rest
  • For Oracle database, use Oracle Native Network Encryption and transport data protection
  • Use the security features of your DB engine to control who can log in to the databases on a DB instance
