This AWS WAF isn’t what you think it is

Darren Weiner, Cloud Architect at NREL, will demonstrate the Well Architected Framework (WAF) at work using Amazon Web Services (AWS).

While the emergence of cloud infrastructures has made it easy to 'spin up' any resource imaginable in minutes, it is also very easy to do things wrong: compromising security, reliability and cost. Success and longevity in IaaS environments will only come about with a clear strategy and proper tactical execution. Adhering to WAF principles allows for secure, sane and manageable implementations in the cloud.

This presentation will include a deep dive into some practical applications and a live demonstration of the WAF at work. Some of the AWS technologies that will be featured include:

Cloudformation
VPC
S3
Application Load Balancers
Docker/ECS
Cloudtrail
Config
Lambda/Serverless
Web Application Firewall - the other WAF
ElasticSearch Service
Alexa

Parking - few lots on the corners that are $5

Social/Networking - join us after the meeting for some beverages/food and networking opportunities with your peers at a local watering hole.

Bring a friend, come learn something new and get CPEs!

Cheers!
