DoD Cloud IaC for AWS receives Authorization to Operate with Conditions

March 31, 2022
The Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Hosting and Compute Center (HaCC) is excited to announce that the DoD Cloud Infrastructure as Code (IaC) for Amazon Web Services (AWS) baseline received a three-year Authorization to Operate (ATO) with conditions from the DISA Risk Management Executive. DoD Cloud IaC for AWS baseline is a collection of templates to build out underlying cloud environments leveraging the latest managed services from AWS, including Elastic Kubernetes Service, Sagemaker, Aurora, and others. These templates help Mission Owners rapidly adopt cloud and focus on what really matters—their applications and data—not the management and continued maintenance of underlying infrastructure.

The DoD Cloud IaC baselines are a cost-effective way to adopt cloud capabilities without the significant up front investment, of time and other resources. "The DoD Cloud IaC for AWS puts the cloud on tap, allowing DoD Mission Owners to adopt the latest AWS services in a repeatable, secure way while benefiting from 103 Common Controls that they can inherit in eMASS to expedite their application Assessment and Authorization" says David Lago, the program manager for DoD Cloud IaC.

The DoD Cloud IaC baseline is available to DoD customers and can be fully deployed by the HaCC in a short session. Contact the HaCC Contact the HaCC to learn more or to schedule an IaC deployment:
