Try practice test
You work as a Solutions Architect for a data analysis firm. The company stores large datasets on Amazon S3, and you've been tasked with setting up an Amazon EC2 instance to process this data. The EC2 instance will fetch data from S3, process it, and then write the results back to a different S3 bucket.

To ensure security, the EC2 instance should not have direct internet access, and it should only be able to communicate with the S3 buckets. You've decided to place the EC2 instance in a VPC private subnet with a CIDR block of 10.0.1.0/24. The associated security group is set to deny all inbound traffic and allow all outbound traffic.

Which additional configuration should you make to enable the EC2 instance to access the S3 buckets while complying with the security requirements?
A: Modify the Network ACL of the subnet to allow outbound connections to the IP range of the S3 service.
B: Assign a Public IP to the EC2 instance and update the security group to allow inbound and outbound traffic to S3.
C: Add a NAT Gateway in the private subnet and update the route tables to direct S3 traffic to the NAT Gateway.
D: Create an S3 VPC Gateway Endpoint and update the route tables for the private subnet to direct S3 traffic to the VPC Endpoint.
E: Create a VPN connection from the VPC to the S3 buckets.

You work as a database manager for a fintech company that uses an AWS RDS PostgreSQL instance. The company abides by stringent data security standards, which require minimal data loss in the event of database failures or accidental data modifications.

Unexpectedly, an operation that updates a significant number of records in a crucial transaction table is mistakenly run. You discover that this operation occurred at 12:45 PM. Your RDS PostgreSQL instance is configured to perform automated backups every day at 1:00 AM, with transaction logs being backed up every 5 minutes. Furthermore, there is a manual DB snapshot taken at 11:00 AM on the same day. 

To restore the database with minimal data loss, considering the sequence and order of log application, which of the following steps should you execute?
A: Restore from the manual DB snapshot at 11:00 AM, then perform a point-in-time recovery to 12:45 PM.
B: Perform a point-in-time recovery to 12:45 PM.
C: Restore from the last automated backup at 1:00 AM, then apply all transaction logs until 12:45 PM.
D: Restore from the manual DB snapshot at 11:00 AM, then apply transaction logs from 11:00 AM to 12:45 PM.
E: Perform a point-in-time recovery to 11:00 AM, then apply transaction logs from 11:00 AM to 12:45 PM.

SecureEC2Setup
EC2
Security Groups
VPC
Try practice test
As an AWS Cloud Engineer for a financial institution, you're setting up an EC2 instance in a VPC to host a web application that handles sensitive financial data. The EC2 instance is placed in a private subnet and associated with a security group that only allows inbound HTTPS (port 443) traffic from the internet. You have an Application Load Balancer (ALB) in a public subnet, which forwards incoming traffic to the EC2 instance.

However, during the testing phase, you find that the web application on the EC2 instance is not reachable from the internet, but works fine from within the VPC. 

What could be the reason for this?
A: The security group should allow inbound traffic from the ALB's security group, not the internet.
B: The ALB should be in the private subnet, not the public subnet.
C: EC2 instances hosting sensitive data cannot be reached through an ALB.
D: The ALB and EC2 instance must be in the same subnet.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Advance Networking in AWS Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

What topics are covered in the Advance Networking in AWS Online Test?

  • AWS Networking

    AWS Networking refers to the various services and features provided by Amazon Web Services for creating and managing a network infrastructure in the cloud. It includes a wide range of components such as VPC, subnets, route tables, internet gateways, and more, which allow users to build scalable and secure networks within the AWS ecosystem.

  • VPC (Virtual Private Cloud)

    VPC, or Virtual Private Cloud, is a service offered by AWS that allows users to create their own isolated virtual network in the cloud. It provides complete control over network settings, including IP address ranges, subnets, routing tables, and network gateways, enabling organizations to design and configure customized networking environments for their applications and resources.

  • Subnets

    Subnets are smaller divisions of IP address ranges within a VPC. They help in organizing and managing different segments of a network, allowing users to distribute their resources across multiple subnets for enhanced security and fault tolerance. By setting up subnets, users can isolate components of their infrastructure and control traffic flow between them.

  • Route Tables

    Route tables serve as a set of rules that determine how network traffic is directed within a VPC. They define the paths for inbound and outbound traffic, specifying which subnets to route the traffic to and which internet gateways or virtual private gateways to use. Proper configuration of route tables is important for efficient routing of network traffic between various resources in the network.

  • Internet Gateways

    Internet Gateways are a vital component of a VPC that allows traffic to flow between the VPC and the internet. They act as a gateway for outbound traffic, enabling resources within the VPC to access the internet, and also as a target for inbound traffic coming from the internet into the VPC. Internet Gateways provide connectivity and enable communication between the resources in the VPC and external networks.

  • NAT Gateways

    NAT Gateways, or Network Address Translation Gateways, provide a means for resources within a private subnet in a VPC to access the internet while remaining protected from direct exposure. They act as an intermediary between the private subnets and the internet, translating the private IP addresses into public ones to enable bidirectional network communication.

  • VPC Peering

    VPC Peering allows the connection of multiple VPCs in AWS, enabling secure communication between them as if they were within the same network. It provides a way to share network resources, such as routing tables, security groups, and subnets, across multiple VPCs, allowing users to create a virtual network topology that spans multiple regions or accounts.

  • VPN Connections

    VPN Connections in AWS enable users to establish secure and encrypted connections between their on-premises networks and their VPCs in the cloud. They provide a secure communication channel over the internet, allowing for secure access to resources in the VPC as if they were locally connected to the on-premises network. VPN Connections are important for hybrid cloud setups and for extending on-premises networks into the AWS cloud.

  • Direct Connect

    Direct Connect is a service offered by AWS that provides dedicated network connections between on-premises data centers and AWS data centers. It bypasses the public internet, offering a more secure, reliable, and low-latency connection for transferring data between the organizations' network infrastructure and their resources in the AWS cloud. Direct Connect is crucial for enterprises with high bandwidth requirements or stringent security and compliance needs.

  • Load Balancers

    Load Balancers in AWS distribute incoming network traffic across multiple resources, such as EC2 instances, containers, or IP addresses, to ensure proper load distribution and high availability of applications. They help in scaling and managing the load on resources, improving overall application performance and fault tolerance. Load Balancers can be configured to distribute traffic based on various algorithms, such as round-robin, least connections, or IP hash, among others.

  • DNS in AWS

    DNS in AWS refers to the Domain Name System services provided by Amazon Web Services. It allows users to manage and resolve domain names to their corresponding IP addresses, enabling access to resources in the AWS cloud through human-readable domain names. DNS services in AWS include Route 53, which offers highly available and scalable DNS management, allowing users to configure DNS records, set up health checks, and perform domain registration.

  • Network Security in AWS

    Network Security in AWS encompasses various features and tools provided by Amazon Web Services for securing network resources and preventing unauthorized access. This includes security groups, network access control lists (ACLs), web application firewalls (WAFs), and more. Network Security in AWS is essential for protecting sensitive data, preventing attacks, and ensuring the integrity and availability of applications and resources.
