Highlights
  • All official CentOS Linux images are built with SELINUX set to enforcing mode. However, we test the images with both Selinux enabled as well as permissive.
  • This image is built to allow remote ssh login only as 'root' user with the key specified at instance launch time.
  • We recommend reviewing the CentOS on AWS Cloud wiki page at http://wiki.centos.org/Cloud/AWS for details on how these images are built, how you might be able to extend and add functionality to these images as well as Getting Started guides.
