Amazon encrypts CloudFront, but security comes at a price

Amazon Web Services' content delivery network service CloudFront can now transfer data over an encrypted HTTPS connection, but users will pay more than if they transfer it via HTTP, Amazon said on Monday.

CloudFront can be used to distribute all files that can be sent over HTTP, including images, audio, video, media files, or software downloads. The service, which is still in beta test, can stream audio and video, as well.
