Security - AWS CloudEndure Migration Factory Solution


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.

IAM roles

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles allow you to assign granular access policies and permissions to services and users in the AWS Cloud. This solution creates IAM roles that grants the AWS Lambda function access to the other AWS services used in this solution.

Amazon Cognito

The Amazon Cognito user created by this solution is a local user with permissions to access only the RestAPIs for this solution. This user does not have permissions to access any other services in your AWS account. For more information, refer to Amazon Cognito User Pools in the Amazon Cognito Developer Guide.

Amazon CloudFront

This solution deploys a web console hosted in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket. To help reduce latency and improve security, this solution includes an Amazon CloudFront distribution with an origin access identity, which is a special CloudFront user that helps provide public access to the solution’s website bucket contents. For more information, refer to Restricting Access to Amazon S3 Content by Using an Origin Access Identity in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.
