About this Hands-on Lab

Securing a GCP web application is an important cloud security skill. In this lab scenario, it’s your responsibility to implement two Cloud Armor web application firewall (WAF) rules that will defend against web app attacks. By implementing SQLi and XSS WAF rules, your web app will be less vulnerable to OWASP Top 10 injection attacks and more secure as a whole.
