(Presented by Alert Logic) AWS provides multiple levels of security between the physical server and facilities up to the host operating system and virtualization layer. This session covers strategies for ensuring your applications, network, and data are secure in a highly-scalable environment.
In this session, you receive practical guidance for implementing scalable web application security in the AWS cloud, including:
-Common techniques and tools used to provide security for auto-scaling web applications including Chef/Puppet, AWS CloudFormation, and Elastic Load Balancing.
-Using auto-scaling groups and requirements for management APIs in automatically deploying web security infrastructure.
-Common scaling triggers and mechanisms by which web application security infrastructure must scale to operate in lockstep with elastic web server farms.
-Approach for deploying application security controls embedded directly into web applications, and considerations for PaaS cloud environments.
This session is designed for an advanced audience with strong understanding of IP networking, web application security fundamentals, and experience in managing security infrastructure in a public cloud environment; however, the information covered is also of interest to intermediate attendees that set technology strategy and formulate requirements for cloud security controls.
