(Optional) Install and Configure Data Defender Manually

The installation and configuration of the Data Defender is automated in the sample AWS CloudFormation templates provided by AWS Ground Station. This step is optional and only applicable for one of the following use cases:

  • You want to create your own template that does not reuse the automation built into the sample templates.

  • You are building custom automation and infrastructure management processes, for example, creating an AMI for your EC2 instance(s).

To manually install and configure Data Defender instead of using the automatic configuration through the AWS CloudFormation templates, use the following steps.
