Options

--security-profile-name (string)

The name you are giving to the security profile.

--security-profile-description (string)

A description of the security profile.

--behaviors (list)

Specifies the behaviors that, when violated by a device (thing), cause an alert.

(structure)

A Device Defender security profile behavior.

name -> (string)

The name you've given to the behavior.

metric -> (string)

What is measured by the behavior.

metricDimension -> (structure)

The dimension for a metric in your behavior. For example, using a TOPIC_FILTER dimension, you can narrow down the scope of the metric to only MQTT topics where the name matches the pattern specified in the dimension. This can't be used with custom metrics.

dimensionName -> (string)

A unique identifier for the dimension.

operator -> (string)

Defines how the dimensionValues of a dimension are interpreted. For example, for dimension type TOPIC_FILTER, the IN operator, a message will be counted only if its topic matches one of the topic filters. With NOT_IN operator, a message will be counted only if it doesn't match any of the topic filters. The operator is optional: if it's not provided (is null ), it will be interpreted as IN .

criteria -> (structure)

The criteria that determine if a device is behaving normally in regard to the metric .

comparisonOperator -> (string)

The operator that relates the thing measured (metric ) to the criteria (containing a value or statisticalThreshold ). Valid operators include:

  • string-list : in-set and not-in-set
  • number-list : in-set and not-in-set
  • ip-address-list : in-cidr-set and not-in-cidr-set
  • number : less-than , less-than-equals , greater-than , and greater-than-equals

value -> (structure)

The value to be compared with the metric .

count -> (long)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a numeric value, use this to specify that numeric value to be compared with the metric .

cidrs -> (list)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a set of CIDRs, use this to specify that set to be compared with the metric .

(string)

ports -> (list)

If the comparisonOperator calls for a set of ports, use this to specify that set to be compared with the metric .

(integer)

number -> (double)

The numeral value of a metric.

numbers -> (list)

The numeral values of a metric.

(double)

strings -> (list)

The string values of a metric.

(string)

durationSeconds -> (integer)

Use this to specify the time duration over which the behavior is evaluated, for those criteria that have a time dimension (for example, NUM_MESSAGES_SENT ). For a statisticalThreshhold metric comparison, measurements from all devices are accumulated over this time duration before being used to calculate percentiles, and later, measurements from an individual device are also accumulated over this time duration before being given a percentile rank. Cannot be used with list-based metric datatypes.

consecutiveDatapointsToAlarm -> (integer)

If a device is in violation of the behavior for the specified number of consecutive datapoints, an alarm occurs. If not specified, the default is 1.

consecutiveDatapointsToClear -> (integer)

If an alarm has occurred and the offending device is no longer in violation of the behavior for the specified number of consecutive datapoints, the alarm is cleared. If not specified, the default is 1.

statisticalThreshold -> (structure)

A statistical ranking (percentile)that indicates a threshold value by which a behavior is determined to be in compliance or in violation of the behavior.

statistic -> (string)

The percentile that resolves to a threshold value by which compliance with a behavior is determined. Metrics are collected over the specified period (durationSeconds ) from all reporting devices in your account and statistical ranks are calculated. Then, the measurements from a device are collected over the same period. If the accumulated measurements from the device fall above or below (comparisonOperator ) the value associated with the percentile specified, then the device is considered to be in compliance with the behavior, otherwise a violation occurs.

mlDetectionConfig -> (structure)

The configuration of an ML Detect

confidenceLevel -> (string)

The sensitivity of anomalous behavior evaluation. Can be Low , Medium , or High .

suppressAlerts -> (boolean)

Suppresses alerts.

--alert-targets (map)

Specifies the destinations to which alerts are sent. (Alerts are always sent to the console.) Alerts are generated when a device (thing) violates a behavior.

key -> (string)

The type of alert target: one of "SNS".

value -> (structure)

A structure containing the alert target ARN and the role ARN.

alertTargetArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the notification target to which alerts are sent.

roleArn -> (string)

The ARN of the role that grants permission to send alerts to the notification target.

Shorthand Syntax:

--additional-metrics-to-retain (list)

Please use CreateSecurityProfileRequest$additionalMetricsToRetainV2 instead.

A list of metrics whose data is retained (stored). By default, data is retained for any metric used in the profile's behaviors , but it is also retained for any metric specified here. Can be used with custom metrics; cannot be used with dimensions.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create a security profile

The following create-security-profile example creates a security profile that checks if cellular bandwidth exceeds a threshold or if more than 10 authorization failures occur within a five-minute period.

aws iot create-security-profile \
    --security-profile-name PossibleIssue \
    --security-profile-description "Check to see if authorization fails 10 times in 5 minutes or if cellular bandwidth exceeds 128"  \
    --behaviors "[{\"name\":\"CellularBandwidth\",\"metric\":\"aws:message-byte-size\",\"criteria\":{\"comparisonOperator\":\"greater-than\",\"value\":{\"count\":128},\"consecutiveDatapointsToAlarm\":1,\"consecutiveDatapointsToClear\":1}},{\"name\":\"Authorization\",\"metric\":\"aws:num-authorization-failures\",\"criteria\":{\"comparisonOperator\":\"less-than\",\"value\":{\"count\":10},\"durationSeconds\":300,\"consecutiveDatapointsToAlarm\":1,\"consecutiveDatapointsToClear\":1}}]"

Output:

{
    "securityProfileName": "PossibleIssue",
    "securityProfileArn": "arn:aws:iot:us-west-2:123456789012:securityprofile/PossibleIssue"
}

Output

securityProfileName -> (string)
