Lab description

Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) offering from AWS. It primarily helps people to reduce their customer's web request latency and reduce network bandwidth costs. It can also be used with other services to improve an application's security posture by enabling traffic encryption and preventing DDoS attacks.

Knowing how to create and configure an Amazon CloudFront distribution is a skill that people aiming to get AWS certified should possess.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
