RedShield and CloudFront

1 min read

Just in case anyone else is going to attempt this challenge here are some pointers:

  1. Use the Custom Name
  2. You’ll need a Custom Cert therefore
  3. Make sure you have the Private Key for the Cert
  4. Ensure RedSheild turn on SNI for the CloudFront

If you do not use a custom name you will get a 403 forbidden error from CFN as it cannot match the FQDN from RedShield into a AWS CloudFront distribution.

If you do not have SNI turned on in RedShield you will either get a Connection Reset error or a Received no Data error.
