AWS Online Training-IAM Groups and Roles

Challenge – IAM Groups and Roles

With Phil Zona
Identity and Access Management, or IAM, is a fundamental concept in AWS security. With it, you can control user access to different resources in your account and grant access between resources and services. In this challenge, you’ll test your ability to manage an environment with several users that need to perform various functions in your organization. There are also different resources that need to interact with one another. Once you’re finished, you’ll have set up a role-based access scheme for your account users and implemented secure communication for a photo upload feature in a web application.

AWS Online Training-Securing Traffic with WAF

Challenge – Securing Traffic with WAF

With Phil Zona
Firewalls are a key component of any web application. They can be used to control and secure traffic to your app, and they prevent a number of potential problems, from SQL injection attacks to malicious bot activity. In this challenge, you’ll face these issues and others using Amazon Web Application Firewall (WAF). When you’re finished, you’ll have configured a more secure application with filters to block unwanted traffic.

AWS Online Training-Auditing AWS Infrastructure for Security

Challenge – Auditing AWS Infrastructure for Security

With Phil Zona

As your infrastructure grows in complexity, managing your security needs can become challenging. Amazon Config lets you audit the resources in your account by reporting configuration changes that could potentially affect the security of your system. In this challenge, you’ll use Config to audit an existing system. When you’re done, you will have an efficient auditing solution that allows you to quickly respond to misconfigured resources.

Challenge – Monitoring Infrastructure with CloudWatch

With Phil Zona

Monitoring is critical for running applications in the cloud. Without it, you have no visibility into the performance of your infrastructure, and you have no way of knowing whether everything is working as expected. Amazon CloudWatch allows you to monitor your infrastructure quickly, simply, and at a low cost. In this challenge, you’ll test your ability to implement a monitoring solution using CloudWatch.
