AWS Inspector V2 and AWS Inspector Classic findings are different
I am using Ubuntu 20.04 EC2 Instances and was investigating the difference between AWS Inspector Classic and AWS Inspector V2. There seemed to be many differences but the main one was the actual findings. With Inspector Classic a number of CVE would be found while with Inspector V2 the same instance once scanned would say `No Findings`. ### Inspector Classic finds 53 CVE's ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IM7H1iE2k8S2iL21F4CODGEQ) ### Same instance with InspectorV2 Just show `No findings` ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMLgoOIjGzSqm7eZcT5bGH4Q) ------- With Inspector Classic I did attach a rule called `Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures-1.1`. I'm not sure what Inspector V2 actually checks against either. During my search to make this work did find that I needed the following Systems Managers manager Association needed to work `InspectorInventoryCollection-do-not-delete`. It's working now and show success for all ec2 instances. I am unsure if the `InvokeInspectorSsmPlugin-do-not-delete` Association needs to work as well. Not quite sure what this is used for but it shows skipped for all instances and when I look at the detailed status output on a specific instances is just says `InvalidPlatform`. Not sure if this is related. Can InspectorV2 actually be used to check Ubuntu 20.04 CVE's. If so how. Is there some special IAM or SSM config/setup that needs to be applied?

Unable to retrieve snapshot due to image not available

Can a stress test artificially kill an ec2 instance?
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/focal/amd64/stress/1.0.4-6 I want to check the value of the StatusFailChecked metric in cloudwatch after forcibly taking down the EC2 Instance as a stress test in the link above. (I wonder if the value of this metric will change if it goes down) However, it seems that the stress program is forcibly terminated when CPU or Memory is used above a certain percentage. Can't I force terminate the instance with that method? I'm also curious if it's possible to forcefully terminate the EC2 Instance as a stress test, and if so, how.
How many Nodes/Requested does Created/Manage by 1 ELB
I am new to ELB, Wanted to use Application load balancer. Total count of web users are near to 1k so How many ALB needed to manage these requests. How many nodes will be created by 1 ELB. How many EC2 can be configured to 1 ELB. Is it good to even go with 1 ELB to handle 4 EC2 or Go with 1 EC2 in which Apache load balancer install to handle these 4 EC2 since it is open source?
Confidential Compute AMD SEV SNP remote attestation
Hi, I'm a university student and I am doing some research regarding AMD SEV-SNP remote attestation. I want to host a VM on AWS with an AMD SEV-SNP processor and perform a remote attestation of the CPU/VM. Does AWS offer an API or another kind of interface, where I can do it? I would like to get the measurements of the VM to validate against AMD. Thank you for any help you can offer.
