Securing Cloud Applications with Identity Aware Proxy (IAP) using Zero-Trust

1 hour 5 Credits

Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

One of the primary use cases for Zero-Trust policy enforcement is to provide secure access to web applications, i.e., HTTP/HTTPS-based applications that are hosted on Google Cloud (or on-premises data centers). Architecturally, the primary component to provide zero-trust access is:

  • Identity-Aware Proxy - a policy enforcement engine for ensuring every access request is authorized.

In this lab, you will walk through deploying a sample application to App Engine and enforcing policies using Identity-Aware Proxy (IAP). You will also obtain user identity information in the application protected by IAP.

What you'll learn

  • Deploying a simple App Engine applicaiton using Python
  • Enabling Identity Aware Proxy (IAP) to restrict access to the application
  • Obtaining user identity information from IAP in your application

Prerequisites

  • Basic programming language knowledge (Python)
