My team and I took the recently released AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate SAA-C03 exam version recently. The SAA-C03 test replaced the old SAA-C02 exam version last August. If you can compare the official exam guide of the previous SAA-C02 version with the latest one (SAA-C03), you may notice that the exam domains are almost exactly the same but with quite different domain percentages. For example, the "Design Secure Applications and Architectures" domain from the previous SAA-C02 version was renamed to just "Design Secure Architectures" domain. This one had an initial 24% exam coverage and then increased to as [...]

Server Name Indication (SNI) Custom SSL Dedicated IP Custom SSL Relies on the SNI extension of the TLS protocol, which allows multiple domains to serve SSL traffic over the same IP address. Offers the same level of security when using Dedicated IP Custom SSL. If you configure CloudFront to serve HTTPS requests using SNI, CloudFront associates your alternate domain name with an IP address for each edge location. The IP address to your domain name is determined during the SSL/TLS handshake negotiation, and isn't dedicated to your distribution. Some older browsers do not support SNI and will not be able [...]
Redis Append-Only Files (AOF) Redis Replication You can enable the Redis append-only file feature (AOF) for data durability. It is similar to creating manual backups. When enabled, the node writes all of the commands that change cache data to an append-only file. When a node is rebooted and the cache engine starts, Redis goes through an AOF to replay the actions that were performed before the crash; the result is a warm Redis cache with all of the data intact. To enable AOF for a cluster running Redis, you must create a parameter group with the appendonly parameter set to [...]
Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) AWS Lambda Amazon ECS is a highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run applications on a managed cluster of Amazon EC2 instances. ECS eliminates the need for you to install, operate, and scale your own cluster management infrastructure. With ECS, deploying containerized applications is easily accomplished. This service fits well in running batch jobs or in a microservice architecture. You have a central repository where you can upload your Docker Images from ECS container for safekeeping called Amazon ECR. Applications in ECS can be written [...]
Service Control Policies (SCP) IAM Policies SCPs are mainly used along with AWS Organizations organizational units (OUs). SCPs do not replace IAM Policies such that they do not provide actual permissions. To perform an action, you would still need to grant appropriate IAM Policy permissions. Even if a Principal is allowed to perform a certain action (granted through IAM Policies), an attached SCP will override that capability if it enforces a Deny on that action. SCP takes precedence over IAM Policies. SCPs can be applied to the root of an organization or to individual accounts in an OU. When you [...]
