FIPS 140-2 Compliant Baseline Image for Amazon Linux 2

“FIPS 140-2, a vital standard for cryptography, is a requirement for non-military U.S. federal agencies, government contractors, and service providers. They must comply with this standard when engaging with federal government bodies handling sensitive but unclassified (SBU) data. Recognized by the U.S., Canada, and the European Union, this security standard governs the management of information across various aspects such as collection, storage, transfer, sharing, and dissemination.

The provided AMI ensures alignment with FIPS 140-2 compliance at both the operating system and application levels. This enables applications running on this platform to not only satisfy compliance requirements but also strengthen the runtime environment.

In addition to the base compliance, preconfigured software applications are available, encompassing CMS platforms, Jenkins, databases, LAMP stack, Ansible, popular DevOps toolchain components, and monitoring applications. These applications are widely utilized by system administrators and DevOps engineers. Furthermore, there are specialized, hardened images based on CIS benchmarks for selected Linux distributions. Notably, the AMIs are meticulously developed following official installation procedures, eliminating the need to learn any custom processes for additional configurations.”
