Linux Bastion Hosts on the AWS Cloud: Linux Bastion Host Quick Start

This is official Amazon Web Services (AWS) documentation for the Linux bastion Quick Start. This Quick Start adds Linux bastion hosts to your new or existing AWS infrastructure for your Linux-based deployments. After you deploy this Quick Start, you can layer your cloud environment with additional AWS services, infrastructure components, and applications to complete your Linux environment in the AWS Cloud. The bastion hosts provide secure access to Linux instances located in the private and public subnets of your VPC. The Quick Start architecture deploys Linux bastion host instances into the public subnets to provide readily available administrative access to the environment. The Quick Start creates an Auto Scaling group to ensure that the number of bastion host instances always matches the capacity you specify. The Quick Start also sets up Amazon CloudWatch Logs for remote storage of shell history logs, for added security. AWS CloudFormation templates automate the deployment. The deployment guide is offered here as a free Kindle book, or you can read it online or in PDF format; see https://aws.amazon.com/quickstart/architecture/linux-bastion/.

Linux Bastion Hosts on AWS (AWS Quick Start)

This Quick Start adds Linux bastion hosts to your new or existing AWS infrastructure for your Linux-based deployments. After you deploy this Quick Start, you can layer your cloud environment with additional AWS services, infrastructure components, and applications to complete your Linux environment in the AWS Cloud.The bastion hosts provide secure access to Linux instances located in the private and public subnets of your VPC. The Quick Start architecture deploys Linux bastion host instances into every public subnet to provide readily available administrative access to the environment. The Quick Start sets up a Multi-AZ environment consisting of two Availability Zones. If highly available bastion access is not necessary, you can stop the instance in the second Availability Zone and start it up when needed.
