ELB Allows HTTP connections

Description

An ELB listener is configured to use HTTP connections between the clients and the load balancer. HTTP connections aren't encrypted and are thus susceptible to eavesdropping and interception.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Remove any HTTP listeners attached to your load balancers. Instead, use HTTPS listeners for secure, encrypted communication between the load balancer and its clients.
