Last Update há 10 meses

Description: Checks if Amazon CloudFront distributions are associated with either WAF or WAFv2 web access control lists (ACLs). This rule is NON_COMPLIANT if a CloudFront distribution is not associated with a web ACL.

Trigger type: Configuration changes

AWS Region: Only available in US East (N. Virginia) Region

How to Resolve Manually

In order to ensure your Amazon CloudFront distribution is COMPLIANT with this AWS Config Rule, you will need to head to the Settings part of your distribution configuration and look for the AWS WAF web ACL section.

This optional setting allows you to choose a web Access Control List (ACL) in AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall) to associate with your CloudFront distribution. Simply choose an appropriate AWS WAF web ACL from this list, and choose save.

This will ensure that your CloudFront distribution is marked as COMPLAINT with regards to this AWS Config Rule.
