comment AWS Cloud Formation.Requires capabilities : [CAPABILITY_IAM] (Child Stack)
Thanks for following up with your discoveries - this seems to match previous observations of mine, but ironically we seem to encounter the inverse behavior as of recently, i.e. CAPABILITY_IAM is now always required once a sub stack resource is involved, even if it doesn't create IAM resources (e.g. the Nesting a Stack in a Template example exposes this behavior, and this happens at the API level). Unfortunately this obstructs other use cases now - has AWS contacted you about this change?

comment How to specify an IAM role for an Amazon EC2 instance being launched via the AWS CLI?
Your analyzed/described the underlying issue correctly (+1), but your conclusions are slightly imprecise/misleading - I've added a separate answer to properly explain how the potential security issue is addressed by IAM.

comment How to address an EC2 instance from both inside and outside datacenter?
@MichaelHampton - Ah right, I've overlooked that Alexandr is planning to use his own A record indeed (rather than a CNAME for the AWS one for example); in this case your suggestion is obviously spot on regarding the desirable routing and cost benefits implied when using the internal IP address where possible, sorry for the sloppy assessment of the question at hand.

comment How to address an EC2 instance from both inside and outside datacenter?
@AlexandrKurilin - I slightly disagree with Michael's suggestion: you could/should just use the new DNS record both internally and externally due to a little known, but nonetheless quite helpful feature of the AWS DNS infrastructure, see Public IP Addresses and External DNS Hostnames: We resolve an external DNS hostname to the public IP address of the instance outside the network of the instance, and to the private IP address of the instance from within the network of the instance.
