Overview of this book

Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) has never been simple, but these days the landscape is more bewildering than ever; its terrain riddled with blind alleys and pitfalls that seem almost designed to trap the less-experienced developer. If you’re determined enough to keep your balance on the cutting edge, this book will help you navigate the landscape with ease. This book will guide you through the most modern ways of building CI/CD pipelines with AWS, taking you step-by-step from the basics right through to the most advanced topics in this domain. The book starts by covering the basics of CI/CD with AWS. Once you’re well-versed with tools such as AWS Codestar, Proton, CodeGuru, App Mesh, SecurityHub, and CloudFormation, you’ll focus on chaos engineering, the latest trend in testing the fault tolerance of your system. Next, you’ll explore the advanced concepts of AIOps and DevSecOps, two highly sought-after skill sets for securing and optimizing your CI/CD systems. All along, you’ll cover the full range of AWS CI/CD features, gaining real-world expertise. By the end of this AWS book, you’ll have the confidence you need to create resilient, secure, and performant CI/CD pipelines using the best techniques and technologies that AWS has to offer.

Integrating AWS Systems Manager with Security Hub to detect issues, create an incident, and remediate automatically

Based on the AWS Security Incident Response Guide, it is recommended to use security response automation, which increases both the scale and effectiveness of your security operations. With the help of automation, we can easily detect and alert the response team about an incident and, based on the specific runbook, which is an automation script, we can also remediate the incident. In this section, we will create a solution that helps us to detect security incidents and loopholes and alert the security operation team.

We will configure the AWS Systems Manager OpsCenter to aggregate all the security findings from AWS Security Hub into OpsCenter as issues. At the same time, we will configure an Event Bridge rule to check the event on the newly created finding in Security Hub and, based on that EventBridge rule, trigger the AWS incident response plan to create an incident...
