Automate cybersecurity analysis with MBSE workflows enabled by AWS

Digital engineering fundamentally relies on integrating data across model structures by using a digital thread – an underlying framework for integrating data from across traditionally siloed functions that create a consolidated view of the system’s data throughout its lifecycle. The cloud is integral to digital engineering by supporting collaboration across geographically dispersed organizations, automating workflows for data connectivity and trade space analysis in a reliable, scalable, and cost-effective manner. This post describes how Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) has used digital engineering in combination with secure and scalable AWS services, to deliver secure IT systems to a large defense program.

Connectivity patterns between AWS GovCloud (US) and AWS commercial partition

AWS GovCloud (US) was architected to have isolation (both physically and logically) from other AWS partitions for compliance. For this reason, AWS services, used to privately interconnect virtual private cloud (VPC) hosted resources within the same partition like AWS PrivateLink, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) peering, or AWS Transit Gateway peering, cannot span from AWS GovCloud (US) to commercial Regions natively by design. In this post, we will highlight four connectivity patterns customers can use to interconnect VPC hosted systems cross partition.
