Overview of this book

Amazon Web Services (AWS) dominates the public cloud market by a huge margin and continues to be the first choice for many organizations. Networking has been an area of focus for all the leading cloud service providers. AWS has a suite of network-related products which help in performing network related task on AWS. This book initially covers the basics of networking in AWS. Then we use AWS VPC to create an isolated virtual cloud for performing network-related tasks. We then provide an overview of AWS Direct Connect after taking a deep dive into scalability and load balancing using the auto scaling feature, Elastic Load Balancing, and Amazon Route S3. Toward the end of the book, we cover troubleshooting tips and security best practices for your network. By the end of this book, you will have hands-on experience of working with network tasks on AWS.

Well done! We have to come the end of this chapter, so let's summarize what we have covered.

In this chapter, we understood the shared responsibility model between AWS and the customer to make the environment more secure. We also discussed Identity and Access Management in detail and implemented all the best practices that are available in the IAM Dashboard that were not compliant earlier. We configured multi-factor authentication for an AWS root account by using the Google Authentication application to make root account access more robust.

Finally, we discussed Security Groups and Network ACL, and also mentioned the differences between both of them.

In the next chapter, we will look at the day-to-day issues we encounter while creating and managing AWS resources.
