This Quick Start automatically deploys the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) PROTECTED Reference Architecture on the AWS Cloud in about an hour. It is for users who want to create cloud-based workloads that use AWS controls that meet the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) Information Security Manual (ISM) requirements for sensitive government data handling at the PROTECTED classification level.

The Reference Architecture demonstrates how multiple AWS services are brought together to support a multi-tier web application with associated security and management services that meet ISM PROTECTED requirements. 

Before storing PROTECTED data, remember to follow the guidance outlined in the IRAP PROTECTED package, which is available through the AWS Artifact page. The template is launched in the Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region by default.

To get started:

Quick Starts are automated reference deployments that use AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy key technologies on AWS, following AWS best practices.

This Quick Start was built by AWS solutions architects.
