Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Craig Golightly, and welcome to my course, Implementing AWS Networking Security Groups. I am a performance engineer at Lucidworks. If you're using AWS EC2 instances, you're using security groups. Security groups control access to and from your EC2 instances, and knowing how to configure them properly can save you time and make your instances more secure. Understanding how internal and external IP addresses are handled in AWS is also a key element to proper network design. This course is a detailed look at security groups and IP addresses assignment for EC2 instances. Some of the major topics that we will cover include security group rules, how to solve common EC2 access problems, internal and external IP assignment, and elastic IPs. By the end of this course, you will be able to troubleshoot and solve common security group access issues and know how to manage internal and external IP addresses in AWS. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with how to launch and log into an EC2 instance. From here, you should feel comfortable continuing on the networking on AWS learning path with courses on Deep dives into Elastic Load balancer and Route 52, AWS Networking and the API Gateway, Implementing an AWS Virtual Private Cloud. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about security groups and EC2 IP addresses with the Implementing AWS Networking Security Groups course at Pluralsight.
