Overview of this book

Google Cloud, the public cloud platform from Google, has a variety of networking options, which are instrumental in managing a networking architecture. This book will give you hands-on experience of implementing and securing networks in Google Cloud Platform (GCP). You will understand the basics of Google Cloud infrastructure and learn to design, plan, and prototype a network on GCP. After implementing a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), you will configure network services and implement hybrid connectivity. Later, the book focuses on security, which forms an important aspect of a network. You will also get to grips with network security and learn to manage and monitor network operations in GCP. Finally, you will learn to optimize network resources and delve into advanced networking. The book also helps you to reinforce your knowledge with the help of mock tests featuring exam-like questions. By the end of this book, you will have gained a complete understanding of networking in Google Cloud and learned everything you need to pass the certification exam.

Configuring VPC networks

In this section, you will learn how to configure the main VPC resources in Google Cloud Platform (GCP), including VPC networks, subnets, and firewall rules. Then, you will go through the routing implementation with both static and dynamic approaches. Once you have covered this, you will learn how to configure VPC network peering to interconnect two VPC networks either inside a project or even across different projects. Additionally, you will implement Shared VPC to interconnect resources in different projects in the same organization using one common Shared VPC network. Finally, this section will show you how to implement Cloud NAT to let private GCE instances (instances without any public Internet Protocol (IP) address) have access to public services.

Configuring VPC resources in GCP

Before starting to configure your VPC, you should be aware of the default settings that have been provisioned by Google Cloud. Indeed, as described in the previous chapter...
