EC2 Image Builder STIG components - EC2 Image Builder

EC2 Image Builder STIG components

Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) are the configuration standards created by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to secure information systems and software. To make your systems compliant with STIG standards, you must install, configure, and test a variety of security settings.

AWS Task Orchestrator and Executor provides STIG components to help you more efficiently build compliant images for STIG standards. These STIG components scan for misconfigurations and run a remediation script. There are no additional charges for using STIG-compliant components.

Compliance levels

  • High (Category I)

    The most severe risk. Includes any vulnerability that can result in loss of confidentiality, availability, or integrity.

  • Medium (Category II)

    Includes any vulnerability that can result in loss of confidentiality, availability, or integrity, but the risks can be mitigated.

  • Low (Category III)

    Any vulnerability that degrades measures to protect against loss of confidentiality, availability, or integrity.

Windows STIG components

Windows STIG components are designed for standalone servers and they apply Local Group Policy. STIG-compliant components install InstallRoot on Windows AMIs from the Department of Defense (DoD) to install and update the DoD certificates. They also remove unnecessary certificates to maintain STIG compliance.

STIG-Build-Windows-Low version 1.4.0

The following list contains STIG settings that are applied to your image. Some STIG settings are not automatically applied. This can be due to technical limitations – for instance, the STIG setting might not be applicable for standalone servers. Organization-specific policies can also prevent automatic application of STIG settings, such as a requirement for administrators to review document settings. For more details about which STIGs are applied to Windows AMIs, you can download our spreadsheet.

For a complete list of Windows STIGs, see the STIGs Document Library. For information about how to view the complete list, see How to View SRGs and STIGs .

The following list contains STIG settings that are applied to your image. Some STIG settings are not automatically applied. This can be due to technical limitations – for instance, the STIG setting might not be applicable for standalone servers. Organization-specific policies can also prevent automatic application of STIG settings, such as a requirement for administrators to review document settings. For more details about which STIGs are applied to Windows AMIs, you can download our spreadsheet.

Linux STIG components

This section contains information about Linux STIG components. If the Linux distribution does not have STIG settings of its own, RHEL settings are applied. STIG settings are applied to components based on the Linux distribution, as follows:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 STIG settings

  • RHEL 7

  • CentOS 7

  • Amazon Linux 2 (AL2)

RHEL 8 STIG settings

  • RHEL 8

  • CentOS 8

STIG-Build-Linux-Low version 3.4.2

The following list contains STIG settings that are applied to your image. Some STIG settings are not automatically applied. This can be due to technical limitations – for instance, the STIG setting might not be applicable for standalone servers. Organization-specific policies can also prevent automatic application of STIG settings, such as a requirement for administrators to review document settings. For more details about which STIGs are applied to Linux AMIs, you can download our spreadsheet.
