In this hands-on lab we'll be setting up a CloudFront distribution in front of an S3 bucket website and securing it via HTTPS provided by CloudFront. AWS CloudFront is a versatile caching service (CDN) that helps with lowering latency when accessing objects over the internet. Additionally, it can act as an HTTPS termination point for your cached website — thus, providing a secure way of distributing your content over the internet.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
