Requirements to discover an AWS Cloud

You need to configure Amazon Web Services account credentials to discover an AWS cloud.

To perform host-based discovery of the virtual hosts contained within an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC):
  • A MID server must be installed and configured on a node within the VPC.
  • Each VPC that is discovered must have a separate discovery schedule for the IP addresses in that VPC.
The account used for the AWS discovery scan needs the ReadOnlyAccess permissions policy applied to it.
