Hi everyone, just a quick question. Since for tls mode, authentication and enrollment is needed. Is it possible to do this on a lambda function? I am asking this because i am trying to use lambda as a central management server where it can query the endpoints. Please do let me know if it does not make sense to do this. Just exploring options. Thanks!

Yes, there are several ways you could make this work.
the general flow here, is that osquery enrolls using a secret from the local machine. The TLS endpoint returns a node key. This node key is used for all subsequent queries.
There are many ways you could do that in AWS lambda. * You record node keys in some backing store. * You could issue something like a signed jwt * Probably more
Depends a lot on your goals
