Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Create a Highly Available VPC

Create a highly available VPC named LabVPC using a CIDR range. Create two public and two private subnets within the VPC.

Note: Be sure to select the VPC only option when creating the VPC.

Configure a Route Table within Your VPC Named PubRT

Configure a route table within your VPC named PubRT that contains the necessary routes for public connectivity.

Create the PublicSG and PrivateSG Security Groups

Create the following security groups: PublicSG and PrivateSG. The PublicSG group should allow HTTPS traffic from anywhere, while PrivateSG should allow traffic only from PublicSG.

Enable Logging of All IP Traffic to a Created S3 Bucket

Create a flow log for the VPC and enable logging of all IP traffic to an S3 bucket that has been created for you.

Additional Resources

You work for a managed service provider, and your team has just received a request from a new client. In the initial request, the client has asked you to create a highly available VPC that contains two public and two private subnets. The client has also requested a security group named PublicSG that will be used to permit HTTPS traffic, as well as a second security group named PrivateSG permitting all traffic from PublicSG. For additional security and monitoring, the client would also like to send VPC flow logs to S3 to monitor all incoming and outgoing traffic.
