Configure Security Groups on AWS EC2 Instances
In this lab, you’ll configure a security group to allow inbound HTTP access to an EC2 instance. You’ll also learn how security groups interact with network access control lists (NACLS) at the virtual private cloud (VPC) subnet level.
Terms and conditions apply.
