Preparation for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Certified Solutions Architect-Associate (SAA-C02) certification exam continues with this 13-video course, in which participants explore AWS security and how to secure AWS cloud deployments by using certificates, encryption, and web application firewalls (WAFs). Begin by examining the AWS Security Hub for viewing cloud security alerts and compliance status, and learn how security is provided by both cryptography and public key infrastructure (PKI). Then watch a demonstration of enabling EBS (Elastic Block Store) volume encryption. Learn how the key management service (KMS) can be used to create and manage encryption keys and practice using the portal to enable a KMS key. Next, explore how the AWS certificate manager relates to PKI, and watch a demonstration of how to deploy a private certificate authority (CA) to issue PKI certificates. As the course concludes, you will learn more about how AWS WAFs protect web applications and watch a WAF being deployed.
