Amazon Inspector Adds Amazon EC2 Instance Details to Security Findings



Amazon Inspector security findings now include the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) ID, instance tags, auto scaling group, hostname, IP addresses, DNS names, and subnet ID of the Amazon EC2 instance that has the vulnerability or insecure configuration. You can view these fields by clicking the ‘Show Details’ button while reviewing a finding in the management console. These fields are also available when you describe findings through the AWS API and CLI.

Amazon Inspector automatically assesses applications for vulnerabilities or deviations from best practices. After performing an assessment, Amazon Inspector produces a detailed list of security findings prioritized by level of severity. These additional fields help you filter, group, and prioritize your security findings based on the image, network location, tags, or other attributes of vulnerable EC2 instances.

Amazon Inspector is available in the following eleven regions: US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Northern California), US West (Oregon), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and AWS GovCloud (US).
