Overview

Set up Amazon Inspector Assessment Template to scan EC2 instances against the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) Rule Package.

CVE rule package is selected, but one or more rule packages can be included as well:

  • Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks: CIS Certified rules packages to help establish secure configuration postures for supported operating systems.
  • Security Best Practices for Amazon Inspector: Amazon Inspector rules to help determine whether your systems are configured securely (Linux Only)
  • Runtime Behavior Analysis: Analyze the behavior of instances during an assessment run. They also provide guidance about how to make EC2 instances more secure.
  • Network Reachability: Analyze network configurations of EC2 instances and provide guidance about restricting access that is not secure.
