AWS Security Meetup — Melbourne -Jan,2018

Happy New Year everyone!

I decided to kick off my year’s technical meetup with AWS Security Meetup. There were two great talks lined up for the night. I have a short takeaway from the talks for people who were not able to attend. Open for

First talk: Let’s Lambda

The talk was presented by Aurėlien Requiem, Solution Architect in AWS.

Title Slide — Let’s Lambda

During the talk he went into the thought process behind the project and drawing inspiration from “Let’s Encrypt” for the title of the talk.

Aurėlien wrote a set of lambda functions that help him request and manage certificates issued by a service other than Amazon Certificate Manager (ACM). The external service in his case was “Let’s Encrypt”.

The architecture of the tool is shown below:

Second talk : Amazon GuardDuty

The talk was presented by Phil Rodrigues, Principal Security Solution Architect, AWS.

Amazon GuardDuty

GuardDuty was announced last month at AWS re:invent. I covered that in my security updates from AWS re:invent 2017.

The talk described how customer can use the Guardduty to monitor for malicious or unauthorized behaviour in their AWS Accounts.

Unfortunately, my phone ran out of battery and I had to leave to attend to something so don’t have more screenshots of slide. We should be able to see the slides on the AWS Security Meetup page soon, i think.
