Add an AWS Security Group Rule that References Another Security Group
In this lab, you will practice adding AWS security group rules that reference security groups. When you're finished with this lab, you'll have a set of security groups whose rules permit access to other resources based on security group referencing.
Terms and conditions apply.
Add a Security Group Rule Allowing Web Servers To Access Database Hosts
You will configure the rules on a database security group to allow inbound access from web servers. You will open up this access by referencing the web server's security groups, instead of using IP's or a CIDR range.
Add a Rule Allowing Load Balancer Access to Web Servers
You will configure the rules on a web server security group to allow inbound access from load balancer nodes. You will open up this access by referencing the load balancer's security groups, instead of using IP's or a CIDR range.
Add a Rule Allowing Task Servers to Access Each Other
You will configure the rules on a task server security group to allow inbound access from other servers that use the same security group. You will open up this access by referencing the security group's ID.
Add Outbound Rules for the Task Server Security Group
You'll configure outbound rules that reference security group ID's for the task server security group.
Add a Rule that References a Security Group in Another VPC
You will add a security group rule that references a security group ID that is owned by a different VPC.
