CloudFronts and Firewalls
Why Cloudfront for an API?
I’m gonna be honest: When my boss told me to put the API on CloudFront, I thought he might have been joking. Why would you need to put an API on a distribution network? Setting it up was the hardest part of this project (no, seriously), and working with the quirks of CloudFront was a pain.
Then it became super obvious why we did it once it started working.
