Making Requests
The Amazon EC2 web service complies with the current WS-Security standard, requiring SOAP request
messages to be hashed and signed for integrity and non-repudiation. WS-Security defines profiles which
are used to implement various levels of security. Amazon EC2 secure SOAP messages use
BinarySecurityToken profile, consisting of an X.509 certificate with an RSA public key.

Programming Language Support in Amazon EC2
Since the SOAP requests and responses in the Amazon EC2 Web Service follow current standards, any
programming language with the appropriate library support may be used. Languages known to have
such support include Perl, Python, Java and C++. Currently we only supply java libraries for our API
but expect to release additional language bindings in the future.
