Why not use SCP when copying files to EC2 instances?

Why are certs for the HSM lecture not uploaded to the EC2 instance using SCP?


I also wander about that, much faster using scp or WinSCP…

From the documentation, https://docs.aws.amazon.com/organizations/latest/userguide/orgs_manage_policies_about-scps.html , it looks like SCP’s are used to enable and manage inheritance of permissions between OU’s. There was no permissions required, apart from the security group applied to the EC2 instance.

I am no expert though, so if I’m wrong, please let me know!


Paul is talking about the Linux command scp or Windows utility WinSCP.
