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 the AWS Cloud. The IoT Device Simulator creates several IAM roles, including roles that grant the device simulator AWS Lambda functions access the other AWS services used in this solution. These roles are necessary to allow the services to simulate devices in your account.

Amazon CloudFront

This solution deploys a static website hosted in an 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 restrict access to the solution’s website bucket contents. For more information, see Restricting Access to Amazon S3 Content by Using an Origin Access Identity.
