AWS Trusted Advisor is a service provided by AWS that offers guidance to optimize AWS infrastructure for security, cost, performance, and fault tolerance. Trusted Advisor provides real-time feedback and recommendations based on the current usage and configuration of AWS services. It leverages AWS best practices and checks for over 100 different criteria across several categories such as Cost Optimization, Performance, Security, Fault Tolerance, and Service Limits.

Regarding the specific question about infrastructure security optimization recommendations, Trusted Advisor can provide guidance on several security-related topics, including:

  • Security Groups: checks for unused and overly permissive rules in security groups.
  • IAM: evaluates the use of MFA, least privilege, unused access keys, and more.
  • Network ACLs: checks for unused and overly permissive rules in network access control lists.
  • Amazon S3: checks for publicly accessible buckets, encryption settings, and more.
  • AWS WAF: checks for outdated and unused rules, and security misconfigurations.

In summary, AWS Trusted Advisor provides security optimization recommendations by analyzing the configuration of AWS infrastructure for security vulnerabilities, and providing guidance based on AWS best practices.
