Package Description

Amazon Detective is currently in preview. The Detective API can only be used by accounts that are admitted into the preview.

Detective uses machine learning and purpose-built visualizations to help you analyze and investigate security issues across your Amazon Web Services (AWS) workloads. Detective automatically extracts time-based events such as login attempts, API calls, and network traffic from AWS CloudTrail and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) flow logs. It also extracts findings detected by Amazon GuardDuty.

The Detective API primarily supports the creation and management of behavior graphs. A behavior graph contains the extracted data from a set of member accounts, and is created and managed by a master account.

Every behavior graph is specific to a Region. You can only use the API to manage graphs that belong to the Region that is associated with the currently selected endpoint.

A Detective master account can use the Detective API to do the following:

A member account can use the Detective API to do the following:

All API actions are logged as CloudTrail events. See Logging Detective API Calls with CloudTrail.
