EC2 Image Builder adds Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks for security hardening of Amazon Machine Images
Now customers can use EC2 Image Builder to create custom Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) that are hardened using Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks. EC2 Image Builder hosts CIS Benchmarks Level 1 for Amazon Linux 2, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7, Microsoft Windows Server 2019, and Microsoft Windows Server 2022. You no longer have to manage your own custom scripts for CIS Level 1 hardening of images with these operating systems. With this feature, you can also choose to automatically update AMIs to the latest version of the CIS standards as they become available.
