Google Cloud Certified Professional Cloud Network Engineer Guide

By: Maurizio Ipsale, Mirko Gilioli

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 a third-party software device (NGFW) insertion into VPC using multiple NICs

In this section, we will introduce the possibility of leveraging the multiNIC support on Google Compute Engine in order to install in GCP any third-party software device that works as an NGFW.

Configuring networking and security for a third-party virtual appliance

During the creation of a new Google Compute Engine instance (Navigation menu |Compute Engine | VM Instances | Create instance | Management, Security, Disks, Networking, Sole Tenancy | Networking tab), we see that our instance has a default network interface (connected to the default VPC in our project); in addition, we are warned by Google with the following message: To create another network interface you need to have a new network first. We can see all of this in Figure 6.26:

Indeed, the possibility to add a second interface...
