Does Linux Security 64 support the AWS Auto Scaling environment?
Yes. The AWS Auto Scaling works and it is supported in Linux Security 64 with Policy Manager, provided new UID is generated for new host when auto scaling.
For an optimal flow you will have to consider adjusting the unique hardware information of the virtualized system, from which the F-Secure Host-ID* is generated and when a F-Secure host is to be considered as disconnected. This will help to sort quicker and more efficient, which host can be manually or automatically removed from the Policy Manager Console domain structure.
F-Secure Host-ID (UID) under Linux Security 64
F-Secure Linux Security 64 derives the UID from the unique information provided by the hardware. Most virtualization platforms emulate the unique hardware information as well so every clone should be unique. This UID cannot be cleared or changed.
The unique hardware ID can be seen with the command:
Currently there is no possibility from within Linux Security 64 to clear UID as it comes from the operating system.
