AWS Systems Manager Session Manager: bye bye bastion hosts!
February 24, 2020
There are customers where public internet access is no go. But at the same time you need to access your EC2 instances, right? How would you approach this? Usually, we use bastion hosts, that's basically a different name for jump host you can use to access internal resources. In AWS, you don't need to manage such extra instances and take care of all the low-level configuration. Instead, you can leverage fully managed Session Manager from the AWS Systems Manager suite!
