In this blog post, you learn how you can securely share files with authorized external parties and track their access using AWS serverless services. The sample application presented uses Step Functions to allow you to extend and customize the workflows to meet your use case requirements.
This blog post shows how to protect a Lambda Function URL, configured with IAM authentication, using a CloudFront distribution and Lambda@Edge. CloudFront helps protect from DDoS, and the function at the edge adds appropriate headers to the request to authenticate it for Lambda.
Reliable interservice communication is an important consideration in microservice design, especially when faced with dual writes. Combining the transactional outbox pattern with dual writes provides a robust way of improving message reliability.
