Security Groups and Network ACLs are the foundation of security in any AWS environment. Understanding the differences between them and the use cases for which they are best suited is crucial to ensuring your environment is as secure as possible to prevent attackers and other malicious actors from compromising your information.

In this lab, you will walk through the differences between Security Groups and NACLs. You will also see how these two protective mechanisms are configured.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
