Changes Added UpdateSecurityHubConfiguration API. Security Hub now allows customers to choose whether to automatically enable new controls that are added to an existing standard that the customer enabled. For example, if you enabled Foundational Security Best Practices for an account, you can automatically enable new controls as we add them to that standard. By default, new controls are enabled.
Changes This release adds additional details for findings. There are now finding details for auto scaling groups, EC2 volumes, and EC2 VPCs. You can identify detected vulnerabilities and provide related network paths.
Changes For findings related to controls, the finding information now includes the reason behind the current status of the control. A new field for the findings original severity allows finding providers to use the severity values from the system they use to assign severity.
Changes Added a new BatchUpdateFindings action, which allows customers to update selected information about their findings. Security Hub customers use BatchUpdateFindings to track their investigation into a finding. BatchUpdateFindings is intended to replace the UpdateFindings action, which is deprecated.
Changes Security Hub has now made it easier to opt out of default standards when you enable Security Hub. We added a new Boolean parameter to EnableSecurityHub called EnableDefaultStandards. If that parameter is true, Security Hub's default standards are enabled. A new Boolean parameter for standards, EnabledByDefault, indicates whether a standard is a default standard. Today, the only default standard is CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark v1.2. Additional default standards will be added in the future.To learn more, visit our documentation on the EnableSecurityHub API action.
Changes The AWS Security Finding Format is being augmented with the following changes. 21 new resource types without corresponding details objects are added. Another new resource type, AwsS3Object, has an accompanying details object. Severity.Label is a new string field that indicates the severity of a finding. The available values are: INFORMATIONAL, LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH, CRITICAL. The new string field Workflow.Status indicates the status of the investigation into a finding. The available values are: NEW, NOTIFIED, RESOLVED, SUPPRESSED.
Changes Security Hub has added to the DescribeProducts API operation a new response field called IntegrationTypes. The IntegrationTypes field lists the types of actions that a product performs relative to Security Hub such as send findings to Security Hub and receive findings from Security Hub.
Changes Security Hub has released a new DescribeStandards API action. This API action allows a customer to list all of the standards available in an account. For each standard, the list provides the customer with the standard name, description, and ARN. Customers can use the ARN as an input to the BatchEnableStandards API action. To learn more, visit our API documentation.
Changes Additional resource types are now supported in the AWS Security Finding Format (ASFF). The following new resource types are added, each having an accompanying resource details object with fields for security finding providers to populate: AwsCodeBuildProject, AwsEc2NetworkInterface, AwsEc2SecurityGroup, AwsElasticsearchDomain, AwsLambdaLayerVersion, AwsRdsDbInstance, and AwsWafWebAcl. The following resource types are added without an accompanying details object: AutoscalingAutoscalingGroup, AwsDynamoDbTable, AwsEc2Eip, AwsEc2Snapshot, AwsEc2Volume, AwsRdsDbSnapshot, AwsRedshiftCluster, and AwsS3Object. The number of allowed resources per finding is increased from 10 to 32. A new field is added in the Compliance object, RelatedRequirements. To learn more, visit our documentation on the ASFF.
Changes Add support for DescribeStandardsControls and UpdateStandardsControl. These new Security Hub API operations are used to track and manage whether a compliance standards control is enabled.
Changes Additional resource types are now fully supported in the AWS Security Finding Format (ASFF). These resources include AwsElbv2LoadBalancer, AwsKmsKey, AwsIamRole, AwsSqsQueue, AwsLambdaFunction, AwsSnsTopic, and AwsCloudFrontDistribution. Each of these resource types includes an accompanying resource details object with fields for security finding providers to populate. Updates were made to the AwsIamAccessKey resource details object to include information on principal ID and name. To learn more, visit our documentation on the ASFF.
Changes This release includes a new Tags parameter for the EnableSecurityHub operation, and the following new operations: DescribeHub, CreateActionTarget, DeleteActionTarget, DescribeActionTargets, UpdateActionTarget, TagResource, UntagResource, and ListTagsforResource. It removes the operation ListProductSubscribers, and makes Title and Description required attributes of AwsSecurityFinding.
Changes This update adds the ListProductSubscribers API, DescribeProducts API, removes CONTAINS as a comparison value for the StringFilter, and only allows use of EQUALS instead of CONTAINS in MapFilter.
Changes AWS Security Hub is a security and compliance center that correlates AWS security findings and performs automated compliance checks
