How the AWS Shared Responsibility Model Works
Amazon Web Services operates off of a shared responsibility model, dividing specific obligations between AWS and the customer. As a general rule, the customer is responsible for security "in" the cloud, while AWS is responsible for security "of" the cloud.
Customers can have a wide range of obligations depending on the cloud services they select. For example, if abstracted services like Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon S3 are used, AWS takes care of the infrastructure. However, when Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) products (such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2) are employed, the customer is required to perform all of the required security configuration and management tasks.
Regardless of which additional tasks Amazon takes on with various services, it is always responsible for the physical infrastructure, including the hardware and facilities that house all AWS Cloud services. Additionally, the retail gian takes care of all base software requirements and networking connections.
