Operational Best Practices for RBI MD-ITF

Conformance packs provide a general-purpose compliance framework designed to enable you to create security, operational or cost-optimization governance checks using managed or custom Amazon Config rules and Amazon Config remediation actions. Conformance Packs, as sample templates, are not designed to fully ensure compliance with a specific governance or compliance standard. You are responsible for making your own assessment of whether your use of the Services meets applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

The following provides a sample mapping between the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Master Direction – Information Technology Framework and Amazon Config managed rules. Each Config rule applies to a specific Amazon resource, and relates to one or more RBI Master Direction – Information Technology Framework controls. An RBI Master Direction – Information Technology Framework control can be related to multiple Config rules. Refer to the table below for more detail and guidance related to these mappings.

ec2-instance-managed-by-systems-manager

An inventory of the software platforms and applications within the organization is possible by managing Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances with Amazon Secrets Manager. Use Amazon Secrets Manager to provide detailed system configurations, operating system patch levels, services name and type, software installations, application name, publisher and version, and other details about your environment.
3.1(c ) Role Based Access Control

access-keys-rotated

The credentials are audited for authorized devices, users, and processes by ensuring IAM access keys are rotated as per organizational policy. Changing the access keys on a regular schedule is a security best practice. It shortens the period an access key is active and reduces the business impact if the keys are compromised. This rule requires an access key rotation value (Config Default: 90). The actual value should reflect your organization's policies.
3.1(c ) Role Based Access Control

emr-kerberos-enabled

The access permissions and authorizations can be managed and incorporated with the principles of least privilege and separation of duties, by enabling Kerberos for Amazon EMR clusters. In Kerberos, the services and the users that need to authenticate are known as principals. The principals exist within a Kerberos realm. Within the realm, a Kerberos server is known as the key distribution center (KDC). It provides a means for the principals to authenticate. The KDC authenticates by issuing tickets for authentication. KDC 维护一个包含其领域中的委托人、它们的密码及其他有关每个委托人的管理信息的数据库。
3.1(c ) Role Based Access Control

iam-group-has-users-check
