Intrusion Detection and Prevention
In this course we will discuss the fundamentals of Intrusion Detection and Prevention on Amazon Web Services. We will explore the difference between IDS and IPS, and the difference between host-based Intrusion Prevention, and Network based Intrusion prevention. We’ll also discuss the various AWS architectures, how do you place an IPS, how do you write rules, how do you respond to the incidents that have been detected, and finally the partner solutions available for intrusion prevention with Amazon web services.

What You'll Learn:
- Course Intro: What to expect from this course:
- Fundamentals of Intrusion Detection and Preventions: In this lesson we’ll define intrusion detection, and discuss AWS responsibility for security in the cloud, firewalls, and alerts.
- IDS/IPS in Detail: In this lesson we’ll dig deeper into the system architecture associated with IDS/IPS.
- Rule Writing: In this lesson we’ll go through rule options.
- Responding to Incidents: In this lesson we’ll look at how incidents are detected and the process for responding to them.
- Architecting IDS/IPS for AWS: In this lesson we’ll look at the various flavors of AWS architectures available and how we will architect the location and the placement of IDS and IPS devices in these architectures.
- Administering and Managing the IDS/IPS: In this lesson we’ll spend some time talking about some best practices in administering and managing your IDS and IPS.
- Partner Solutions: In this lesson we’ll look at the partners who offer IPS.
- Conclusion: A summary and review of what you have learned.
All right now let's look at some partner solutions for AWS. Because the IPS itself is not available as part of the AWS services so there are several partners who offer traffic analysis features bundled in with their product offering. So it's very rare to see an IPS standalone these days. So these are some of the products that can be used to analyze the traffic. So I encourage you to go to the AWS marketplace and search for possible partners that you could work with. And like I said, Check Point's a firewall but it also comes with an IPS. So go ahead and I encourage you to look at the site, and find the right partner for you.
