CV.JamesBromberger.com Footnotes

This site is an example of using AWS to serve content in a serverless way. Components of this are:

  1. CodeCommit: all content is inside a Git repository.
  2. CodePipeline: upon commit to the above CodeCommit repo, a pipeline deploys this content to a non-production URL, and notifies me to validate it. After validation, the live site is deployed
  3. The static content files are extracted to a prefix with an S3 Bucket: /staging/$non-prod, and /production/cv.jamesbromberger.com/ for production
  4. CloudFront is serving the content from its worldwide network of Points of Presence
  5. Cloudfront is serving this on IPv4 and IPv6
  6. The TLS configuration of CloudFront is up to date: check it with SSLLabs.com. Only TLS 1.2 and 1.3 are enabled.
  7. This domain has a CAA record to restrict other CAs from being duped into mis-issuance
  8. CloudFront has HTTP/2 enabled, and compression enabled
  9. Cloudfront is redirecting all HTTP to HTTPS
  10. Security headers for this are set to be restrictive: check them with securityheaders.com; they are set using Lambda@Edge with NodeJS
  11. CloudFront is accessing the S3 bucket for content using an authenticated Origin Access Identity
  12. CloudFront is logging to an S3 bucket
  13. S3 is also logging to an S3 bucket (different prefix to the Cloudfront log)
  14. There is S3 versioning on the S3 logging bucket, and the bucket holding the web content
  15. There is an S3 retention policy on the logging bucket for all objects after a period
  16. There is an S3 retention policy on the content bucket for previous revisions to be removed after a period
  17. There is an ACM issued certificate on both the staging and production sites for this CV
  18. Route 53 has the DNS for this site; it also holds the TLS Certification authorisation records so te certificates will automatically be reissued year-on-year
  19. The HitCounter is via AWS API Gateway
  20. The HitCounter has a valid CORS header
  21. The HitCounter executes Lambda (Python) to increment and return the current hit
  22. The HitCounter is accessing DynamoDB as its persistent store
  23. The framework for the HTML content is Bootstrap 5
  24. The monthly cost for this hosted CV in AWS is less than a few cents

If this CV has higher uptime, better responiveness, better security posture than your corporate services, then we should talk!
