DoD-Compliant Implementations in the AWS Cloud

Our US federal customers are finding interesting and exciting ways to use the AWS cloud for their IT infrastructure and data management. Our focus on these customers remains a high priority for AWS Compliance, and to further our efforts in providing customer-focused compliance enablers, we have updated our existing Department of Defense (DoD) whitepaper. This update now reflects the current requirements of the DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (CCSRG).

With the updated reference architectures detailed in DoD-Compliant Implementations in the AWS Cloud, DoD mission owners can proceed with designing, deploying, and managing applications on AWS in a manner that complies with the CCSRG requirements that must be satisfied by the mission owner.

Additionally, we have created a centralized DoD website, in order to provide a wider variety of security guidance to our DoD customer base. On this newly expanded site, you will find links to a range of resources, including whitepapers, online documentation, and security videos. You can also request a partner package that will enhance your ability to compile the authorization package for your application.

Please contact us with questions about complying with DoD regulations or meeting your compliance requirements in the cloud.
