Security - Auto Check-In App

Security

When you build systems on AWS infrastructure, security responsibilities are shared between you and AWS. This shared model can reduce your operational burden as AWS operates, manages, and controls the components from the host operating system and virtualization layer down to the physical security of the facilities in which the services operate. For more information about security on AWS, visit the AWS Security Center.

IAM Roles

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles enable customers to assign granular access policies and permissions to services and users on AWS. This solution creates several IAM roles, including roles that grant the solution’s AWS Lambda functions access to other services used in this solution.

Encryption

The Auto Check-In App leverages HTTPS which uses SSL/TLS encryption for data in transit. By default, server-side encryption is enabled on the solution’s Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket and Amazon DynamoDB table to encrypt data at rest. For more information, see Protecting Data Using Server-Side Encryption in the Amazon S3 Developer Guide, and DynamoDB Encryption at Rest in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.
