AWS Security Hub

AWS Security Hub is a tool available in the AWS cloud platform. Integrating AWS Security Hub with CoreStack helps users to view all security details in CoreStack. In other words, this integration helps users see all security-related findings for their AWS cloud accounts in one place. With this integration, they don’t have to refer to different sources to learn about security findings across their accounts.

AWS Security Hub aggregates all the security findings from AWS, then all those details are made available in CoreStack. Users can only view the details. No remediation steps can be taken from CoreStack. If a Security Hub master account is integrated with CoreStack, then accounts that are not onboarded in CoreStack are also displayed in the findings. To view the relevant list of onboarded accounts that are integrated with AWS Security Hub, users must use the available filter options to filter out any irrelevant accounts. If a Security Hub account is not the account master and is integrated with CoreStack, then accounts that are onboarded in CoreStack will be displayed in the findings.

The cloud account details from AWS are synced at particular periods, and any updated details will be shown in the findings list within CoreStack.
