Security - FHIR Works on AWS

Security

When you build systems on AWS infrastructure, security responsibilities are shared between you and AWS. This shared model reduces your operational burden because AWS operates, manages, and controls the components including the host operating system, the virtualization layer, and the physical security of the facilities in which the services operate.

IAM roles

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles allow customers to assign granular access policies and permissions to services and users in the AWS Cloud. This solution creates an IAM role, serverlessApiGatewayCloudWatchRole, to grant access to the solution’s Amazon API Gateway to send logs to Amazon CloudWatch.
