About this Hands-on Lab

Amazon VPC provides features that you can use to increase and monitor the security for your VPC:

Security groups — Act as a firewall for associated Amazon EC2 instances, controlling both inbound and outbound traffic at the instance level

Network access control lists (ACLs) — Act as a firewall for associated subnets, controlling both inbound and outbound traffic at the subnet level

In this activity, the student will gain experience with using security groups and network access control lists to secure the different layers of a multi-tier application.
