Security & Identity Fundamentals
Fundamental 6 Steps 5h 30m 30 Credits
Security is an uncompromising feature of Google Cloud Platform services, and GCP has developed specific tools for ensuring safety and identity across your projects. In this fundamental-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with GCP’s Identity and Access Management (IAM) service, which is the go-to for managing user and virtual machine accounts. You will get experience with network security by provisioning VPCs and VPNs, and learn what tools are available for security threat and data loss protections.
PrerequisitesAlthough this quest will teach you the fundamentals of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Security in GCP, you will still need hands-on experience with the platform's core tools and services. It is recommended that the student have at least earned a Badge by completing the GCP Essentials and/or the Baseline: Infrastructure Quests before beginning.
warning Cloud IAM: Qwik Start
Google Cloud IAM unifies access control for Cloud Platform services into a single system to present a consistent set of operations. Watch the short video Manage Access Control with Google Cloud IAM.
warning IAM Custom Roles
Cloud IAM provides the right tools to manage resource permissions with minimum fuss and high automation. You don't directly grant users permissions. Instead, you grant them roles, which bundle one or more permissions. This allows you to map job functions within your company to groups and roles.
warning Service Accounts and Roles: Fundamentals
In this hands-on lab, you will learn how to create and manage Service Accounts
warning VPC Network Peering
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Network Peering allows private connectivity across two VPC networks regardless of whether or not they belong to the same project or the same organization.
warning Getting Started with Cloud KMS
In this lab you'll work with advanced features of Google Cloud Security and Privacy APIs, including setting up a secure Cloud Storage bucket, managing keys and encrypted data using Key Management Storage, and viewing Cloud Storage audit logs.
warning Setting up a Private Kubernetes Cluster
Hands-on lab for creating a private cluster in the cloud environment. In a private cluster, nodes do not have public IP addresses, so your workloads run in an environment that is isolated from the Internet. Prerequisites: Experience with Kubernetes Clusters, and CIDR-range IP address.
