Managing Amazon GuardDuty Security Findings Across Multiple Accounts

2021-05-04T08:41:17+00:00

In our previous article, we discussed how GuardDuty can help organizations monitor their workloads and  AWS accounts from malicious activities and how to monitor findings with Amazon CloudWatch Events. Imagine that your organization has multiple AWS accounts for different workloads, teams, and projects. With every account, you need to monitor GuardDuty findings individually. It will be quite difficult for your security team to monitor these findings with their constant switching between AWS accounts.  Amazon GuardDuty supports the consolidation of these findings to one AWS account. For example, your organization has 10 AWS accounts. All you have to do is to [...]

Monitoring GuardDuty Findings with Amazon CloudWatch Events

2021-05-04T08:41:05+00:00

Large scale cyber attacks are now becoming normal in this age of interconnectivity. As we rely more and more on cloud technologies, companies are looking to tap into digital innovations to improve their businesses. Cyber attacks are costing companies millions of dollars of downtime not to mention the possibility of lawsuits whenever an attack occurs. It is imperative that security teams have the means to prevent, detect, and take actions to ensure that the security of their workloads in AWS are airtight. Amazon GuardDuty was released during the 2017 re:Invent conference. Amazon GuardDuty is an agentless threat detection service that [...]

Aurora Serverless Tutorial Part 2

2021-05-03T13:22:18+00:00

In the first part of this tutorial, we gave a walkthrough on Aurora Serverless and its use case. You can read the article here. For this tutorial, we will do some hands-on training and create an Aurora Serverless database. Creating an Aurora Serverless Database: 1. Open the AWS console and go to RDS. Click the button “Create database”. 2. Choose Amazon Aurora. You can either choose MySQL or PostgreSQL compatibility. In this tutorial, we will use MySQL compatibility. As of this writing, there are two versions of MySQL that Aurora serverless supports. Under the Database Features, select serverless. 3. Under [...]

Aurora Serverless Tutorial – Part 1

2021-05-03T13:22:11+00:00

What is Aurora Serverless?  Before we get into it, let us briefly define Aurora and serverless first. Aurora is a fully managed, closed source relational database that is compatible with MySQL and PostgreSQL. According to Amazon, it is five times faster than the standard MySQL and three times faster than PostgreSQL. It uses a distributed architecture that provides fault tolerance and high availability.  Serverless is a technique in the cloud that follows the ‘pay-per-use’ model. As opposed to its name, serverless does not mean not using ‘servers’. There is no magic in it. It still uses a physical server that [...]

Lifecycle Event Hooks in CodeDeploy

2021-06-13T23:57:27+00:00

Bookmarks Events Things To Consider In biology, life cycle refers to the series of stages or events that occur during an organism’s lifetime. Lifecycle also applies when automating software deployment on AWS CodeDeploy. Lifecycle event hooks refer to the series of events that describes how a deployment is accomplished. It allows you to control or perform actions on different stages of your deployment. In the traditional way, whenever you release a new feature for your application, you would have to manually disable the app and install the code. If the code resides in a repository [...]

Amazon EBS Multi-Attach

2021-05-04T09:20:35+00:00

Amazon Elastic Block Store or EBS is a durable block-based storage device that can be attached to your EC2 instance. AWS released a feature called Multi-Attach, which allows EC2 instances to share a single EBS volume for up to 16 instances and provide higher availability of your applications for Linux workloads. Each instance to which the volume is attached has full read and write permissions to the volume. The following are several considerations and limitations in using the Multi-Attach feature: Multi-Attach enabled volumes do not support I/O fencing. I/O fencing protocols control write access in a shared storage environment to [...]

ECS Network Modes Comparison

2021-05-03T12:55:41+00:00

Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) allows you to run Docker-based containers on the cloud. Amazon ECS has two launch types for operation: EC2 and Fargate. The EC2 launch type provides EC2 instances as hosts for your Docker containers. For the Fargate launch type, AWS manages the underlying hosts so you can focus on managing your containers instead. The details and configuration on how you want to run your containers are defined on the ECS Task Definition which includes options on networking mode.  In this post, we’ll talk about the different networking modes supported by Amazon ECS and determine which mode [...]

AWS CloudFormation Deletion Policy

2021-05-04T07:35:42+00:00

Deleting a stack on CloudFormation also removes all the provisioned resources in it. In some cases, you want some resources to be retained even after deleting its stack. The good thing is that you can do this by defining its DeletionPolicy.  This is pretty straightforward - you just need to define DeletionPolicy with Retain value and for the resources that support snapshot, (like RDS databases) you can set Snapshot as its value. With DeletionPolicy: Snapshot, a snapshot is created before a resource is deleted. This allows you to have a backup of the resource that's been deleted from the stack. [...]

AWS CloudFormation StackSets and Nested Stacks

2021-05-04T08:40:23+00:00

AWS CloudFormation lets you model and provision resources for your environment using programming language, leveraging the concept of Infrastructure as Code (IaC). You don’t need to manually create all of your resources one by one, CloudFormation will do this for you. All resources are defined on the AWS CloudFormation template. This means that this AWS environment can be reliably and easily reproduced since everything is declared on a template. For example, creating a new Test environment similar to your current setup, or when creating a Disaster Recovery environment in another region.  With AWS CloudFormation, you can either upload your own [...]
