Few days back I was trying to redirect all my http traffic to https by default with help of an elastic loadbalancer mounted with two webservers. I have enabled both 80 and 443 port numbers in listener section and added SSL certificate.
I’m having a personal website hosted at AWS EC2 with ELB. Today I have started my AWS EC2 instances (I had turned off due to non usage and Of course, I can save some cost) and tried to load my website via AWS Elastic loadbalancer public dns url but it was not coming up in my browser, instead of webpage I got a blank white page. So I checked my AWS EC2 instances and ELB services.
Today Amazon Cloudfront announced graph based usage reports for Web HTTP distributions. I was awaiting for this feature for a long time and I’m very happy about it. It’s not available for RTMP based distributions by this time. I hope AWS will enable the graph report soon.

AWS EC2 – Security Group

By this method you can block unwanted access from unwanted networks.
