Great post about application authentication and authorization on AWS;



Authenticating users is a solved problem on AWS. The quickest way to get authentication working is ALB + Cognito user pool. You can also leverage Cognito user groups to implement a lightweight authorization layer in your application.

Machine-to-machine communication is where things get more complicated. Unfortunately, the ALB does not cover that use case. It gets even worse if some machines run inside AWS while others run outside.
