Amazon said its AWS Shield service mitigated the largest DDoS attack ever recorded, stopping a 2.3 Tbps attack in mid-February this year.
To enable a password authentication, you create a password, update the
/etc/ssh/sshd_config file, and then restart the SSH service. The following procedure is tested on Amazon Linux, RHEL, SUSE, and Ubuntu
Note: Using a password-based login rather than key pair authentication has security implications. Therefore, password-based login isn’t recommended. Also, it’s a best practice to minimize the source IP addresses of the security group rules associated with your instance to prevent an SSH attack.
A common theme that ran through the quarterly results of the companies: the strength in cloud businesses. This isn’t surprising, given the lockdowns necessitated by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that led to remote working and studying, heightening the demand for cloud services.
Do you remember the movie “Ex Machina“? The most captivating part of the movie is when – Ava, an AI robot, becomes self-aware and deceptive than the creator ever imagined. Apart from the movie, we certainly can’t comment on when we are going to witness that in reality, but we are witnessing the unfolding of a golden era: the era of AI (artificial intelligence). And all thanks to ML (machine learning).
Debates like “whether AI will take over humans or not” builds a succinct foundation of this golden era. Big shots in the tech industry like Microsoft, Google, Facebook have already started rolling out AI-enabled products, which, if not ignored, bring more value to the table.
Machine learning is a huge industry, and AWS has a whole section of services dedicated to it. We’ll explain what they’re offering, from services for running ML models to their prebuilt AI-powered services that you can integrate directly with your app.
There is something very powerful about automating even the little things. We sometimes think as automation as the simple maths of saving a given number of minutes/seconds by a given number of times a day but the compound effect is much greater.
As you will be setting up more automation for your deployments, you will run into and solve problems many times more critical than saving a few minutes a week.
Amazon EC2 (AWS) CLI tools (Command Line Tools) wrap the Amazon EC2 API actions. These tools help us to Manage Amazon EC2 services through command line interface. We can also use them inside scripts for task automation like backups, creating snapshots etc.
