Security - AWS Streaming Data Solution for Amazon MSK


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 AWS security, refer to AWS Cloud Security.

IAM roles

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles enable customers to assign granular access policies and permissions to services and users in the AWS Cloud. This solution creates IAM roles for communication between services. For more information, refer to Providing Access to an AWS Service in the IAM User Guide.

Security groups

This solution creates a security group for the Amazon MSK cluster so that it can communicate with the other solution components. This security group only includes the minimal rules required for Apache Kafka to work properly.


Each AWS service included in this solution is integrated with AWS CloudTrail, which captures all API calls. For more details, refer to the following documentation:
