In brief, I'm using a secure endpoint connection (EC2 instance connect) that allows only ports 22 and 3389. Is port 22 safe, considering its common use as a connection port?


"I am utilizing the secure endpoint connection (EC2 instance connect), and the documentation specifies that only ports 22 and 3389 are allowed. My question is whether port 22 is secure because it's a commonly used connection port.
