As a managed service, AWS App Runner is protected by the AWS global network security procedures that are described in the below document -

You use AWS published API calls to access App Runner through the network. Clients must support Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 or later. We recommend TLS 1.2 or later. Clients must also support cipher suites with perfect forward secrecy (PFS) such as Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (DHE) or Elliptic Curve Ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (ECDHE). Most modern systems such as Java 7 and later support these modes.

Additionally, requests must be signed by using an access key ID and a secret access key that is associated with an IAM principal. Or you can use the AWS Security Token Service (AWS STS) to generate temporary security credentials to sign requests.

To prevent your APP runner you can Implement least privilege access, You can customize them and grant only the permissions that are required for your users and your App Runner service to perform their tasks. This is particularly relevant to user policies, where different user roles might have different permission needs. Implementing least privilege access is fundamental in reducing security risk and the impact that could result from errors or malicious intent.
