This activity provides you with the opportunity to get hands-on experience solving a real-world scenario where we want to block web traffic from a malicious source.

The AWS WAF service protects your web applications from common exploits that could affect availability, compromise security, or consume excessive resources.

WAF monitors HTTP requests directed at Amazon CloudFront or an Application Load Balancer. In this learning activity, we'll focus on the Load Balancer.

NOTE: Switch to AWS WAF Classic for this lab.

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.
