AWS SHIELD STANDARD LOGGING

0

Do AWS Sheild Standard logs by default into ACL or is there any other service where it logs? Also, is there any difference between AWS Sheild Standard logs and ACL logs?

I was only able to find Shield Advanced logs and their mechanisms but not for Shield standard.

Thanks in advance.

I don't believe there is any detailed logging for AWS Shield Standard, not even in Amazon CloudWatch.
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/waf/latest/developerguide/monitoring-cloudwatch.html which states for AWS Shield advanced. Also, the events page in the console is for AWS Shield Advanced.

You can see total account activity detected in the Getting Started page - https://docs.aws.amazon.com/waf/latest/developerguide/ddos-standard-event-visibility.html

AWS Shield is going to mitigate any Layer 3/4 DDoS attack automatically so it isn't a concern for your environment. AWS Shield Advanced is used to protect your Amazon CloudFront, Load Balancer traffic, etc from being DDoS'ed.
