This video reviews WAF/shield for EC2.
- [Instructor] AWS WAF and Shield.…This is a web application firewall…that monitors HTTP and HTTPS requests.…And these requests would've been forwarded…either to AWS CloudFront or an application load balancer…that sits in front of EC2.…You use it to control access to your content,…based on conditions that you specify.…Examples of these are specific IP addresses…that your requests are originating from,…values of query strings that are passed in to requests.…
Additionally, you can configure CloudFront…to return a custom error page when a request is blocked.…WAF is the basic set of services…and Shield is a premium version of this.…As with some of these other security concepts,…if this type of firewall is a new concept for you,…I recommend that you dig in to the documentation…to understand all the capabilities.…As with the other services though,…we are going to go directly to a demo.…So as I mentioned, WAF can be be used…to protect, as it were, load balancer end points…that sit in front of EC2.…
