Intrusion Detection and Prevention
The course is part of these learning paths
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.
- This course is for developers or operations engineers looking to deploy security solutions applications in production AWS platform
- People studying for the AWS Security Specialty Certification exam
- Implementation experience with enterprise security packages
- Familiarity with industry compliance and security standards including PCI DSS, ISO 27001, HIPAA, and NIST
- Experience of architectures meeting industry standards such as SAS70, SOC1, FISMA, etc.
- Fundamental understanding of TCP/IP protocols and packet analysis
- Recognize and explain the basics of Intrusion detection/prevention
- Recognize and explain best practices in designing intrusion detection/prevention architecture

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.
And that brings us to the end of this course. In closing, let's go over what we have learned so far in this course. We talked about the various types of intrusion prevention and detection models. We then discussed about the basic structure of an IPS/IDS rule and how to design them. What to do with the incidents detected, and the key features of an incident management process. We then moved on to the meat of this course, which was the various flavors of VPC architectures and the placement of IPS/IDS devices in each of them. We also discussed some of the best practices in administering and maintaining the IDS/IPS itself. And lastly we spoke about the AWS marketplace for IPS products. I hope you found this course useful.
