Study Notes

  • Chapter 2 of the text focuses on implementing security solutions in hybrid scenarios.
  • Lesson 1 introduces Network Security Groups (NSGs) and their role in controlling network traffic in Azure.
    • NSGs filter inbound and outbound network traffic.
    • Security rules for NSGs include properties like name, priority, source/destination, protocol, direction, and action.
    • NSGs can be applied to both subnets and network interfaces, and the same NSG can be applied to multiple resources for administrative efficiency.
  • Lesson 2 discusses Azure Security Center, its capabilities, and its benefits in improving security positions, tracking compliance, and protecting environments and data within Azure.
  • Lesson 3 covers Azure Automation and Update Management, which helps update Azure VMs and includes features like reviewing update status and defining queries based on computer groups.
  • Inbound and outbound traffic can be secured using various rule types such as program rules, port rules, predefined rules, and custom rules.
  • Windows Defender Firewall can be administered with Windows Server IaaS VMs in Azure.
  • Filtering options include NAT rules, network rules, and application rules for outbound and inbound connectivity.
  • NAT rules enable inbound internet connectivity, and network rules and application rules can be used in combination with priority order for inbound and outbound connectivity.

Test your knowledge on implementing network security solutions in hybrid scenarios. Learn about Network Security Groups (NSG) and how to filter inbound and outbound network traffic to control specific traffic types.
