Deploying a Deep Discovery Inspector Virtual Appliance on AWS

Trend Micro Vision One can connect to a Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance deployed on AWS.

Note:
  • In order to access and use the Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance in AWS, you must already have and continually maintain an active AWS Account on the AWS Marketplace and you are responsible for purchasing and maintaining through such AWS Account, your use of the Amazon Web Service platform/infrastructure that is required for your deployment of a Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance.

  • The following instructions are current as of December 1, 2020. The AWS settings may be different if you are using a newer release of AWS. Refer to the AWS documentation for specific information related to your release.

  1. On the Trend Micro Vision One console, go to Inventory Management > Network Inventory, and then click Connect Network Sensor.

    The Connect Network Sensor panel appears.

  2. For Product, select New Deep Discovery Inspector.
  3. Click Get AMI on Marketplace to open the AWS Marketplace and deploy Deep Discovery Inspector.

    The Amazon EC2 console opens.

  4. Initiate the instance launch.
    1. In the navigation bar at the top of the screen, select a Region for the instance that meets your needs.
    2. From the Amazon EC2 console dashboard, select Launch instance.


  5. Choose the AMI for Deep Discovery Inspector.
    1. On the Choose an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) screen, select AWS Marketplace in the left pane.
    2. In the search box, search for Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector.


    3. After the search results appear, click Select for Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector <version>.
  6. Choose an Instance Type.
    1. On the Choose an Instance Type screen, choose an instance type that meets the minimum specifications based on your licensed model's throughput.

      For details, see the Deep Discovery Inspector AWS Deployment Guide.

    2. Choose Next: Configure Instance Details to configure your instance further.


  7. Configure the Instance Details.
    1. On the Configure Instance Details screen, change the follow settings.
      • Network: Select the VPC.

      • Subnet: Select the subnet into which to launch your instance. Select a subnet that is planned for the data port subnet.

      • Auto-assign Public IP: Select Disable. Trend Micro recommends that you deploy the Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance behind an AWS NAT gateway.



      • Network interfaces: Add a secondary network interface for the Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance instance by choosing Add Device.

        Important:

        The management port for Deep Discovery Inspector on-premises is fixed at the first NIC port (eth0 in Deep Discovery Inspector). In order to adapt into the AWS environment, the Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance has swapped port enumeration for the management port to port 1 (eth1) and data port to port 0 (eth0).

      • Device eth0:

        • Subnet: The subnet has been configured in a previous step.

        • Primary IP: Type a private IPv4 address from the range of your subnet, or leave Auto-assign to let AWS choose a private IPv4 address for you.

      • Device eth1:

        • Subnet: Select a subnet that is planned for the management port subnet.

        • Primary IP: Type a private IPv4 address from the range of your subnet, or leave Auto-assign to let AWS choose a private IPv4 address for you.

        • IPv6 IPs: (Optional) Click Add IP and type an IPv6 address from the range of the subnet, or leave Auto-assign to let AWS choose an IPv6 address for you.



    2. Click Next: Add Storage to specify the root volume size of your instance
  8. Add Storage.
    1. Specify the following settings on the Add Storage screen.
      • Size: The storage size should meet the minimum specifications based on your licensed model's throughput.

        For details, see the Deep Discovery Inspector AWS Deployment Guide.

        Note:

        To enlarge the storage size, specify the storage size of the Volume Type: Root. The Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance only partitions the storage when the Volume Type is Root. The extra storage will not be used.

      • Volume Type: Use the default value, General Purpose SSD (gp2).



    2. Click Next: Add Tags to add some custom tags.
  9. Add Tags.
    1. On the Add Tags screen, specify tags by providing the key and value combinations.

      For example, for Key type Name and for Value type vDDI-demo.

    2. Click Next: Configure Security Group.


  10. Configure Security Group.
    1. On the Configure Security Group screen, use a security group to define firewall rules for the Deep Discovery Inspector virtual appliance instance.
      • To use existing security group, select Select an existing security group, and select your security group.

      • To create a new security group, select Create a new security group.

    2. Verify that your selected security group contains the following rules:
