Hardening AWS EC2 AMI image

RE: Hardening AWS EC2 AMI image
Hey Patrick,

For the apt-get update/upgrade/dist-upgrade/autoremove/clean, I was considering the server, rather then the agent. Any issues updating the server?

From your previous reply:

Quote:For the agents you can block all inbound traffic. You should never need to connect to them. For the server, restricting ssh to a few IP's is good.

I was under the (mis)understanding that the agents needed to be reachable from the server, is this not the case? Is the access from the server to the agent implied? Or would you block all inbound traffic to the agent, including the server?

Quote:you can configure the agents to connect to the server's private IP

So for this to work, I would need make the agent long lived and I would have to ssh to the agent and update the agent to use the server private IP?

Quote:if you screen -r from the ubuntu user account you can watch the agent session as well.

Dumb question, this on the agent side right?

Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get my head around this.
