AWS CloudFormation template security group viewer

        Almost any AWS CloudFormation template are more then long enough. It's OK when you are dealing with different relatively "static" resources but become a big  problem for something way more dynamic like security group.
    This kind of resource you need to modify and review a lot, especially if you cloud security professional.  Reading AWS CloudFromation template JSON manually  makes your life miserable and you can easily miss bunch of security problems and holes.
     My small aws_secgroup_viewer Python program helps you to quickly review and analyse all security groups in your template.

     Supports both security group notations used by CloudFormation: firewall rules inside security group or as separate resources linked to group.
