This activity allows the student to gain experience designing and implementing a secure bastion host solution. A bastion host is a server whose purpose is to provide a private connection to your private infrastructure in AWS from an external or public network. The Bastion Host provides an extra layer of security for your private infrastructure at all times. In this Learning Activity, we will setup a Bastion Host and learn how to establish a secure connection.
