Greener Grass - Device Defender - Detect

  • AWS IoT Device Defender provides a suite of options for Audit, Detection and Mitigation of IoT related security threats.
  • When the next deployment of your Greengrass Core happens the Device Defender Connector will be brought up and should start logging metrics every 5 minutes.
  • Now that metrics are flowing in, we have to start creating some security profiles that define what bad behaviour looks like.
  • We want to setup a rule that detects a variation in the amount of traffic, and report information when the event does occur.
  • These selected metrics are data points that will be plotted for you automatically when digging into a security event.
  • Run the following command to create the security profile defined in the json file.
  • Look out for a future post on how we can setup some simple alerting for Device defender, and then even mitigate problems automatically using Mitigation actions.

Can Microsoft topple Amazon as the top cloud? Here's what partners say - Business Insider

  • Amazon has the top spot when it comes to cloud market share, but Microsoft is presenting more of a threat than ever.
  • Amazon Web Services essentially invented the modern cloud computing market in the mid-'00s, and dominates it to this day.
  • Even technologically, Amazon appears to be chasing Microsoft in other areas: At its annual re:Invent conference this month, AWS announced that its Outposts product is now available — representing Amazon's big push into hybrid cloud, a market in which Microsoft has long established itself.
  • Likewise, AWS announced Amazon Braket, a new quantum computing service that helps it keep pace with similar efforts from Microsoft and Google.
  • With all this at play, we asked 13 executives at AWS partner companies about whether Microsoft has a chance of beating Amazon for the top cloud spot.

Branded Hybrid Clouds Redraw Data Center Boundaries. Here's How

  • Amazon Web Services’ announcement in November of its Outposts on-premises managed compute and storage racks, preceded by mere weeks by Cisco’s announcement that it was coupling its existing Kubernetes-based Cisco Container Platform (CCP) with Amazon’s Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (AKS), has intensified interest in hybrid cloud solutions.
  • Suddenly, there appear to be several options for data centers co-mingling on-premises assets with public cloud resources, all in one network space, without needing an advanced certification to pull it off.
  • The most significant of these new hybrid cloud solutions are those that extend a single virtual address space across on-premises servers and public cloud-based resources.
  • With Cisco’s new Hybrid Cloud Solution, CCP’s address space may be extended to include AWS territory without IT operators having to exit Cisco’s CloudCenter and enter AWS’s interface to manage it.

Amazon Faces Widening US Antitrust Scrutiny in Cloud Business

  • Dina Bass, David McLaughlin and Naomi Nix (Bloomberg) -- U.S. antitrust enforcers have broadened their scrutiny of Amazon.com Inc. beyond its retail operations to include its massive cloud-computing business, according to people familiar with the matter.
  • Investigators at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission have been asking software companies recently about practices around Amazon’s cloud unit, known as Amazon Web Services, said the people, who declined to be named because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly.
  • The outreach by the FTC signals that the agency, which is already looking at Amazon’s conduct in its vast online retail business, is taking a broader look at the company to determine whether it could be violating antitrust laws and harming competition.
  • One issue the FTC could look at is whether Amazon has an incentive to discriminate against those software companies, which sell their products to clients of AWS, while at the same time competing with Amazon.

AWS re:Invent 2019: AWS Plays to Its Strengths, Urges Cloud Migration

  • In many ways, Jassy's pitch at AWS re:Invent 2019 sounds a lot like the reasons why AWS has been so successful with its cloud model over the years.
  • To add yet another element to the model-building process, today at AWS re:Invent 2019, the company announced ML Embark, a program to help customers train their development staff to become ML programmers.
  • While everyone else is trying to bridge gaps between the enterprises and the cloud, AWS is inserting itself into customer or partner data centers via its AWS Outposts solution, which was announced as generally available this week.
  • Jassy explained that AWS recognizes that some workloads will need to stay on premise, but implied that solutions like Outposts are merely a step along the way to full cloud migrations.

My re:Invent: From A to Z

  • I’ve just got back from my first AWS re:Invent, it was exciting and busy and I learned a whole lot.
  • I got my first taste of how enormous the campus was on Day One. My plan was to follow the crowd to the MGM where I could catch a shuttle to the Venetian.
  • The Expo Hall opened on Monday when vendors of all kinds offered swag, sessions and at one booth Starbucks.
  • Back to back sessions, lots of walking, stopping to chat to someone on the way and trying to catch up with what I’d missed became tiring.
  • While all the exciting things like Keynotes and the Expo were held at the Venetian I would recommend checking out the other venues earlier on.
  • Now that I am back in New Zealand (and more rested) I’m excited to review my notes, teach a workshop or two and start watching all the sessions in my playlist.
