We may remove that with #1765 This comment has been minimized. The Security Group’s name will be based on the name of our CloudFormation stack (see previous article) The Security Group only allows inbound traffic from the VPC’s own internal address range.

Which makes sense, because AWS automatically adds an ALLOW ALL egress rule to each security group created. CloudFormation Security Group All Traffic. The following template example defines an EC2 security group with an ingress rule that allows incoming traffic on port 80 from any other host in the security group.
