AWS Squid Blog Gets an Update

1 min read

The AWS Squid blog recently got an update to cater for Amazon Linux 2, autoscaling and not having to compile squid anymore.

Nicolas Malaval has pretty much nailed this blog down nicely as it covers all aspects of what you would want an enterprise squid solution to cover. No point re-inventing the wheel here. This ones a go to blog post.

In this post, I’ve shown how you can use Squid to implement a high availability solution that filters outgoing traffic to the Internet and helps meet your security and compliance needs, while being fully transparent for the back-end instances in your VPC. I’ve also discussed the key differences between transparent proxies and forward proxies. Finally, I gave an example of how to share a transparent proxy solution across multiple VPCs using AWS Transit Gateway.
