Exercise 1 - Administering Network Resources

Securing an OpenStack instance is a very crucial administrative duty. The tasks that will be completed in this exercise are essential to secure resources.

Security groups are a set of IP based firewall rules to specify access to network resources. When the OpenStack instance is deployed a default security group is created, this security affects all the Projects that are created globally.

By creating custom security groups, customized rule sets can be applied to specific Projects that have been created.

Another way of securing the OpenStack instance is creating keypairs. This will ensure that users will not need passwords to access the OpenStack instance when using SSH connections. The public key will be stored on the server, and the private key will be stored on the user’s computer when the user uses SSH to connect to the server.

The need to create an external network is to ensure that the virtual machines that are created in the Private Cloud will be accessible externally.

In this exercise, you will learn more about managing a cloud solution using OpenStack.
