Security Groups

A security group acts as a virtual firewall for your instance to control inbound and outbound traffic. For each security group, you add rules that control the inbound traffic to instances, and a separate set of rules that control the outbound traffic. When you specify a security group as the source for a rule, this allows instances associated with the source security group to access instances in the security group. CloudCheckr offers various reports to keep track of the security groups associated with different services.
