Checks if the default security group of any Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) does not allow inbound or outbound traffic. The rule is NON_COMPLIANT if the default security group has one or more inbound or outbound traffic rules.


There may be a delay between when Amazon Config records the deletion of related resources such as default security groups, which are deleted as part of the Amazon VPC deletion. As a result, even if all default security groups or other related resources have been deleted or remediated, the rule may report NON_COMPLIANT until the next account baselining process.
