Egress Only Internet Gateway
Egress Only Internet Gateway (EOIG) is an AWS service that enables customers to easily control outbound traffic from their Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network. With EOIG, customers can configure a highly secure, private pathway from their VPC to the internet, enabling them to securely access and transfer data to external resources such as websites and applications. EOIG provides an extra layer of security by allowing the customer to specify which types of traffic can flow through the gateway in order for it reach its destination. Additionally, EOIG provides enhanced visibility into outbound traffic flows via detailed logging capabilities. As a result, organizations gain improved control over their network’s performance and security posture while also gaining better insight into what is happening on their networks.
