This new Quick Start deploys a standardized environment that helps organizations meet the following requirements: 

  • National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) SP 800-53 (Revision 4) high-impact security control baseline. This baseline is for workloads that are categorized as high-impact systems, per NIST FIPS Publication 199.
  • The Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) Instruction 1253
  • Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)
  • The DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG)
  • NIST SP 800-171
  • The OMB Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) Initiative – FedRAMP Overlay (pilot)

The Quick Start was built in collaboration with Trend Micro and features the Trend Micro Deep Security product. 

The deployment is automated by AWS CloudFormation templates and scripts that build an example multi-tier, Linux-based web application in the AWS Cloud with comprehensive protection using Trend Micro Deep Security. The deployment guide provides step-by-step instructions for deploying and configuring the environment. The Quick Start also includes a security controls matrix, which maps the architecture decisions, components, and configuration in the Quick Start to security requirements within NIST, TIC, and DoD Cloud SRG publications. 

Quick Starts are automated reference deployments for key workloads on the AWS Cloud. Each Quick Start launches, configures, and runs the AWS compute, network, storage, and other services required to deploy a specific workload on AWS, using AWS best practices for security and availability. 

To get started, use the following resources:
