Amazon Web Services (AWS) Compliance File Reference

The Amazon AWS audit includes checks for running instances, network ACLs, firewall configurations, account attributes, user listing, and more. To audit a remote instance, you need a valid set of Amazon AWS access keys and access to an IAM account assigned to a ReadOnly access group. For more information, see IAM Policy to Allow AWS Compliance Scanning. Because AWS is a web-based service, the Amazon AWS audit does not have any designated targets, unlike a typical Nessus audit.
