Amazon VPC provides features that you can use to increase and monitor the security for your VPC: Route tables Security groups * Network access control lists (NACLs) When you launch an instance in a VPC, you can associate one or more security groups that you've created. Each instance in your VPC could belong to a different set of security groups. You can secure your VPC instances using only security groups; however, you can add network ACLs as an additional layer of defense. In this learning activity, you will configure multiple layers of security in a VPC.

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.
