CloudFront - Internal ELB Origin

0

Hi all, By Documentation to be able to use ELB as an Origin for a CloudFront Distribution it should be internet-facing. the question is why CloudFront is showing also Internal Load Balancers between the list of possibile Origin Domains that can be selected during the creation of a new Origin ? there is a way to use CloudFront with Private resources ?

No, you can't use an internal-only load balancer as an origin for CloudFront.

Why does it show in the list? Because the console is retrieving a list of all load balancers but there's no particular flag that says "this is an internal load balancer" versus "this is an internet-facing load balancer". That's determined by the subnet, route tables and public IP address assignment.
