VPC Traffic Mirroring-Capture & Inspect Network Traffic (AWS)

Originally published at: https://sweetops.com/sub/vpc-traffic-mirroring-capture-inspect-network-traffic-aws/

Complex networks require constant monitoring for unusual traffic patterns or content that signal a network intrusion, compromised instance, or some other anomaly. VPC Traffic Mirroring is a new feature used with existing virtual private clouds (VPCs) to capture and inspect network traffic at scale. Operating as a “virtual fiber tap,” it first captures traffic from VPCs across many AWS accounts, and then routes it to a central VPC for inspection.
