Abstract: Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a renowned provider of cloud computing services and infrastructure for businesses of all kinds. As organizations shift crucial data and apps to the cloud, security becomes paramount. This abstract describes AWS's security model and efforts to secure client data and prevent unauthorized access. The AWS security model protects client assets with many layers. AWS data centers include tight access controls, surveillance systems, and numerous levels of protection. AWS also meets worldwide security requirements and best practices. The shared responsibility approach governs AWS and customer security. AWS secures the infrastructure, while clients secure applications, data, and user access. AWS offers identity and access management, network security, encryption, and threat detection to help businesses meet security requirements. AWS security relies on identity and access management (IAM) to govern user access to AWS resources. IAM lets organizations set fine-grained access controls, implement multi-factor authentication, and link with identity systems, improving security. AWS protects data in transit and at rest with strong network security. Network access control lists (ACLs) and security groups provide clients granular control over inbound and outgoing traffic in Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environments. AWS data is protected by several encryption solutions, including key management services for secure key storage and access. AWS monitors and logs to detect and mitigate security risks. AWS CloudTrail, Config, and Guard Duty let clients monitor and audit their AWS environments, detect configuration changes, and detect security breaches and criminal behavior. In conclusion, AWS security protects client data and applications. AWS secures cloud installations through physical, network, data, and identity and access management. Organizations must understand their shared obligations and use security services and features to secure their AWS resources.
