In this lab you will allow and deny access to a network using firewall rules. You'll deploy the following lab environment of Projects, Networks, and Subnetworks to the Google Cloud Platform:
The MyProject environment includes 2 Networks with 8 auto Subnetworks each (1 for each Region) and 1 Network with 1 Custom Subnetwork. While it is common to implement an application in a single Project, it is also common for large organizations to adopt multi-Project approaches to allow teams and micro-services to function independently.
The exercises you'll go through are ordered to reflect the evolution of simple to complex network configurations. All of these configurations reflect common customer requirements.
This diagram is an overview of the network environment at the end of the lab:
What you'll learn:
- How default and user-created Networks are configured
- How to use the latest features of Firewalls for more precise and flexible control of connections
- How to use routes in Compute Engine
- How to identify and understand network-specific IAM roles
What you'll need:
- Basic knowledge of Google Cloud services (best obtained by having previously taken the labs in the GCP Essentials Quest)
- Basic networking and TCP/IP knowledge
- Basic Unix/Linux command line knowledge
