[Bug 1835114] [NEW] [MIR] ec2-instance-connect


You have been subscribed to a public bug by Christian Ehrhardt  (paelzer):

ec2-instance-connect is in the Ubuntu archive, and available for all supported
releases. It is available on all architectures despite only being useful on
Amazon EC2 instances.

This package is useful on Amazon EC2 instances to make use of a new feature:
Instance Connect; which allows storing SSH keys for access online in the Amazon
systems. These SSH keys are then retrieved to be used by the system's SSH
service, collated with pre-existing keys as deployed on the system.

Installing the package enables the use of Instance Connect on an

This is a new package, and as such has no security history to speak of.

[Quality Assurance]
The package consists in a few shell scripts that are difficult to test by
themselves due to the high reliance on Amazon's Instance Connect service;
which is online and limited to use on Amazon instances.

Given that it's a new package, there are no long-term outstanding bugs in
Ubuntu or Debian. The package is only maintained in Ubuntu at the moment.

This package deals with special "hardware"; it is only useful on Amazon
instances, and its support is required as a default deployment on such
instances when deployed with Ubuntu.

[UI Standards]
Not applicable. This service is command-line only and has no configuration options.

There are no special dependencies to speak of.

[Standards Compliance]
This package has been thoroughly reviewed by a few Canonical engineers, there
are no standards violations known.

This package is to be owned by the Ubuntu Foundations team.

[Background Information]
This is Amazon-specific, as previously mentioned.
