I was just reading the AWS security group documentation and the basic usage where “allow tls” is utilized is wrong, because the protocol number being used is 443, which is HTTPS.
Several protocols like HTTPS, SMTP, etc. utilize TLS.
TLS is used to encrypt the above Application Layer protocols. So it’d be preferable if the actual protocol “HTTPS” be used, instead of TLS.
I assume you are referring to the documentation at Terraform Registry for the
If so, the documentation is managed via git at terraform-provider-aws/security_group.html.markdown at main · hashicorp/terraform-provider-aws · GitHub and improvements can be submitted as pull requests. Alternatively it might help to raise an issue within that GitHub repository if you aren’t able to send a PR.
Thanks, Stuart, I just did.
