AWS Config Compliance ChallengePush your skills to the next level in a live environment
- Stay within resource usage requirements.
- Do not engage in or encourage activity that is illegal.
- Do not engage in cryptocurrency mining.
The hands-on lab is part of these learning paths
Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.
AWS Config is a service that continuously monitors your AWS infrastructure. It allows you to audit and assess how your resources are configured to ensure compliance with best practices and organization-specific requirements.
Candidates aiming to get AWS certified should be able to configure AWS Config to record changes to resources, and to create rules that highlight non-compliant changes to resources in AWS.
This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to build out a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and a set of requirements that you must fulfill to pass the challenge.
This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied situation, leaving behind multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
