Risk Level: Medium
Cloud Entity: Application Load Balancer
CloudGuard Rule ID: D9.AWS.NET.AG2.5.ApplicationLoadBalancer.22.TCP
Covered by Spectral: No
Category: Networking & Content Delivery
ApplicationLoadBalancer where inboundRules contain [port <= 22 and portTo >= 22 and protocol in ('TCP','ALL')] should not have inboundRules contain [port <= 22 and portTo >= 22 and protocol in ('TCP','ALL') and scope numberOfHosts() > 256]
It is recommended to remove the rules that allow permissive SSH/Remote/Admin access.
As a further protection, use CloudGuard Dynamic Access Leasing to limit access to SSH/Remote Desktop only from allowed sources and only when needed.

An Application Load Balancer functions at the application layer, the seventh layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model. After the load balancer receives a request, it evaluates the listener rules in priority order to determine which rule to apply, and then selects a target from the target group for the rule action. You can configure listener rules to route requests to different target groups based on the content of the application traffic. Routing is performed independently for each target group, even when a target is registered with multiple target groups.
