When you create an AWS account, a default sign-in identity is also created and associated to the account with full access to all of the AWSresources and services within the account. This account is known as the root user account and uses the email address along with the password you set when the account was created. Following AWS security best practices, you should use your root account to create an IAM user account following the least privileges principal and simply treat the root user account in emergency/last resort scenarios.
This how-to article will walk you through setting up a base Splunk Cloud Enterprise environment using the Splunk Cloud Enterprise Light license
In this final article for the series, we will break down the terraform code used to create the NSOT application instances, Bastion host instances for management, and frontend Elastic load balancer fronting the NSOTapplication servers.
In this article, we will walk through the terraform modulecode to spin up a redundant RDS MySQL database service to run the NSOTapplication backend. Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud.
Deploy a Production Ready Network Source of Truth (NSOT) IPAM solution in AWS Part III – Create Terraform Logs Module to capture VPC Flow Logs
In our previous article, we walked through the Terraform code to create the base VPC module for our Production ready NSOT (Network Source of Truth) IP Address Management application. The next module we are going to create is a “logs” module that will be used to set up VPC flow logs for our VPC. VPC Flow Logs is a feature that enables you to capture information about the IP traffic going to and from network interfaces in your VPC. Flow log data can be published to Amazon CloudWatch Logs and Amazon S3.
Deploy a Production Ready Network Source of Truth (NSOT) IPAM solution in AWS Part II – Create Terraform VPC Module
Creating a production ready NSOT application in AWS, completely automated via Terraform. The deployment is broken down into Terraform modules to automate the configuration deployment due to the size and complexity of a production NSOT AWS configuration.
– NSoT is an API-first application that provides a REST API and a web application front-end for managing IP addresses (IPAM), network devices, and network interfaces. This open- source application can be incorporated into both automated on-prem and cloud builds to manage and assign IP addresses.
