AWS::SecurityHub::Hub - Amazon CloudFormation
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

AWS::SecurityHub::Hub

The AWS::SecurityHub::Hub resource specifies the enablement of the Amazon Security Hub service in your Amazon Web Services account. The service is enabled in the current Amazon Web Services Region or the specified Region. You create a separate Hub resource in each Region in which you want to enable Security Hub.

When you use this resource to enable Security Hub, default security standards are enabled. To disable default standards, set the EnableDefaultStandards property to false. You can use the AWS::SecurityHub::Standard resource to enable additional standards.

When you use this resource to enable Security Hub, new controls are automatically enabled for your enabled standards. To disable automatic enablement of new controls, set the AutoEnableControls property to false.

You must create an AWS::SecurityHub::Hub resource for an account before you can create other types of Security Hub resources for the account through Amazon CloudFormation. Use a DependsOn attribute, such as "DependsOn": "Hub", to ensure that you've created an AWS::SecurityHub::Hub resource before creating other Security Hub resources for an account.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "Type" : "AWS::SecurityHub::Hub", "Properties" : { "AutoEnableControls" : Boolean, "ControlFindingGenerator" : String, "EnableDefaultStandards" : Boolean, "Tags" : {Key: Value, ...} } }

YAML

Type: AWS::SecurityHub::Hub Properties: AutoEnableControls: Boolean ControlFindingGenerator: String EnableDefaultStandards: Boolean Tags: Key: Value

Properties

AutoEnableControls

Whether to automatically enable new controls when they are added to standards that are enabled.

By default, this is set to true, and new controls are enabled automatically. To not automatically enable new controls, set this to false.

Required: No

Type: Boolean

Update requires: No interruption

ControlFindingGenerator

Specifies whether an account has consolidated control findings turned on or off. If the value for this field is set to SECURITY_CONTROL, Security Hub generates a single finding for a control check even when the check applies to multiple enabled standards.

If the value for this field is set to STANDARD_CONTROL, Security Hub generates separate findings for a control check when the check applies to multiple enabled standards.

The value for this field in a member account matches the value in the administrator account. For accounts that aren't part of an organization, the default value of this field is SECURITY_CONTROL if you enabled Security Hub on or after February 23, 2023.

Required: No

Type: String

Pattern: ^(SECURITY_CONTROL|STANDARD_CONTROL)$

Update requires: No interruption

EnableDefaultStandards

Whether to enable the security standards that Security Hub has designated as automatically enabled. If you don't provide a value for EnableDefaultStandards, it is set to true, and the designated standards are automatically enabled in each Amazon Web Services Region where you enable Security Hub. If you don't want to enable the designated standards, set EnableDefaultStandards to false.

Currently, the automatically enabled standards are the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Amazon Foundations Benchmark v1.2.0 and Amazon Foundational Security Best Practices (FSBP).

Required: No

Type: Boolean

Update requires: No interruption

Tags

An array of key-value pairs to apply to this resource.

For more information, see Tag.

Required: No

Type: Object of String

Pattern: ^[a-zA-Z0-9-_]{1,128}$

Minimum: 0

Maximum: 256

Update requires: No interruption

Return values

Ref

When you pass the logical ID of this resource to the intrinsic Ref function, Ref returns the HubArn for the hub resource created, such as arn:aws:securityhub:us-east-1:123456789012:hub/default.

For more information about using the Ref function, see Ref.

Fn::GetAtt

The Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function returns a value for a specified attribute of this type. The following are the available attributes and sample return values.

For more information about using the Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function, see Fn::GetAtt.

ARN

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Hub resource that was retrieved.

SubscribedAt

The date and time when Security Hub was enabled in your account.

Examples

The following examples show how to declare an AWS::SecurityHub::Hub resource.

Creating a Hub resource that enables default standards and turns on consolidated control findings

In this example, the default standards are automatically enabled, and consolidated control findings is turned on.

JSON

{ "Description": "Example Hub with Tags", "Resources": { "ExampleHubWithTags": { "Type": "AWS::SecurityHub::Hub", "Properties": { "Tags": { "key1": "value1", "key2": "value2" }, "EnableDefaultStandards": true, "ControlFindingGenerator": "SECURITY_CONTROL" } } }, "Outputs": { "HubArn": { "Value": { "Ref": "ExampleHubWithTags" } } } }

YAML

--- Description: Example Hub with Tags Resources: ExampleHubWithTags: Type: 'AWS::SecurityHub::Hub' Properties: Tags: key1: value1 key2: value2 EnableDefaultStandards: true ControlFindingGenerator: 'SECURITY_CONTROL' Outputs: HubArn: Value: !Ref ExampleHubWithTags

Creating a Hub resource that disables default standards and turns off consolidated control findings

In this example, the default standards are disabled, and consolidated control findings is turned off.

JSON

{ "Description": "Example Hub with Tags", "Resources": { "ExampleHubWithTags": { "Type": "AWS::SecurityHub::Hub", "Properties": { "Tags": { "key1": "value1", "key2": "value2" }, "EnableDefaultStandards": false, "ControlFindingGenerator": "STANDARD_CONTROL" } } }, "Outputs": { "HubArn": { "Value": { "Ref": "ExampleHubWithTags" } } } }

YAML

--- Description: Example Hub with Tags Resources: ExampleHubWithTags: Type: 'AWS::SecurityHub::Hub' Properties: Tags: key1: value1 key2: value2 EnableDefaultStandards: false ControlFindingGenerator: 'STANDARD_CONTROL' Outputs: HubArn: Value: !Ref ExampleHubWithTags
