In Depth: AWS IAM and VPC
One of the most important leading features that Amazon Web Services released on 2011 was the VPC. Together with the IAM (Identity Access Management) It helps the enterprise to deploy a more secure and robust environment inside the amazing AWS public cloud. Before the VPC, all the AWS computing nodes were exposed to the internet without the option to protect specific instances that include critical service and data. The security groups were a good tool to support security separation of instances though it was never enough and include a great amount of custom work. With VPC the public cloud consumer can create a private secured portion that easily communicate with the public resources. These slides present best practice on how to manage IAM and an example of VPC deployment with a secure integration with the the on-premise resources.
