AWS Security Hub today released updates and additions to AWS Security Finding Format (ASFF). It now supports additional resource types and these include AwsElbv2LoadBalancer, AwsKmsKey, AwsIamRole, AwsSqsQueue, AwsLambdaFunction, AwsSnsTopic, and AwsCloudFrontDistribution. Each of these resource types also includes an accompanying resource details object that identifies recommended fields for findings providers to populate. Updates were also made to the AwsAccessKey resource details object to include information on principal ID and name.
Available globally, AWS Security Hub gives you a comprehensive view of your high priority security alerts and compliance status across your AWS accounts. With Security Hub, you now have a single place that aggregates, organizes, and prioritizes your security alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, Amazon Macie, AWS IAM Access Analyzer, and AWS Firewall Manager, as well as from AWS Partner solutions. You can also continuously monitor your environment using automated compliance checks based on the AWS best practices and industry standards, such as the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark. Lastly, you can take action on these security and compliance findings by using CloudWatch Event rules to send the findings to ticketing, chat, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR), and incident management tools or to custom remediation playbooks.
You can enable your 30-day free trial of AWS Security Hub with a single-click in the AWS Management console. Please see the AWS Regions page for all the regions where Security Hub is available.
