Find Public IPs of Resources – Use AWS Config for Vulnerability Assessment

Systems vulnerability management is a key component of your enterprise security program. Its goal is to remediate OS, software, and applications vulnerabilities. Scanning tools can help identify and classify these vulnerabilities to keep the environment secure and compliant. Typically, vulnerability scanning tools operate from internal or external networks to discover and report vulnerabilities. For internal […]

Modernized Database Queuing using Amazon SQS and AWS Services

A queuing system is composed of producers and consumers. A producer enqueues messages (writes messages to a database) and a consumer dequeues messages (reads messages from the database). Business applications requiring asynchronous communications often use the relational database management system (RDBMS) as the default message storage mechanism. But the increased message volume, complexity, and size, […]

Serverless Scheduling with Amazon EventBridge, AWS Lambda, and Amazon DynamoDB

Many applications perform scheduled tasks. For instance, you might want to automatically publish an article at a given time, change prices for offers which were defined weeks in advance, or notify customers 8 hours before a flight. These might be one-off tasks, or recurring ones. On Unix-like operating systems, you might have opted for the […]
