"...we won't respond to your testing as if your instances were under attack."

So how do I test my application to see how it will really behave if it was under attack? AWS's DDoS and attack mitigation are a part of my application delivery path and I want to test the real thing as well, not just my application "naked" to the internet with AWS's stuff turned off - though I will test that, too.

If I specify in my penetration testing request that I want AWS to leave in place its attack responses, will you honor that request?

Good question, Shlomo. We’re honored that you trust our incident response procedures enough to account for them in your development. However, we can’t allow random on-demand testing of that because, as I’m sure you’d understand, it would place undue burden on our personnel -- which could prevent them from responding real attacks that need addressed.
