Too Long; Didn't Read

AWS has an awesome firewall built into its core services which can easily be used to make sure that only certain ports are open to the outside world. One extra step that we can take is to run a VPN Server that serves as the gateway to our protected EC2 instances. We can then shutdown direct SSH access to our EC2 instances and also have the freedom to block access to our entire network just by revoking access via our VPN Server. The later is very useful if you need to revoke access for a former employee.
