We will learn about identity access management and the key management service (KMS)—two services that are core to how you allow role-based and key-based access to your GCP environment. We will briefly look into cloud security scanner. We will also learn about security keys, which allow you to secure your account using two-step verification. In this chapter, we will cover the following:

  • Infrastructure and cloud platform security

There is a lot more to identity and security service offerings than what this chapter covers. This brief overview will help you get started with GCP’s security offerings.
