Thursday, July 9th – 6:12pm @ Virtual Only
I hope this post finds you happy and healthy and thoroughly unmelted.
I think if this heat continues, its bound to cause power disruptions and my availability zone will experience connectivity issues. For those non-cloud people, that means I’ll be hiding in my house until the Fall.
Fortunately, this months DC612 is Virtual! So even if you’re like me and skeptical of the outside, DC612 can be beamed into your homes, apartments and yurts.
For the July meeting, Kat, one of the DC612 organizers will be speaking on topic she has become a recent, unwilling expert.
GCP IAM 101
“Identity and Access Management (IAM), is a framework of policies and technologies for ensuring that the proper people in an enterprise have the appropriate access to technology resources.”
Google Cloud Platform (GCP), is like any system in that it has needed to design a framework for authenticating Users and authorizing them to access resources. How GCP and its IAM system has evolved tells a story about what is important to them, and how their products as a whole have evolved.
In this talk I will start at the very basics, like, who is a WHO in GCP and how are permissions granted to them. I’ll talk about the basic structure of GCPs Cloud IAM, and some of the strong design decisions that are pervasive in the platform. Finally I’ll talk about the what constitutes privilege in GCP and a few ways to get it.
This month, as in the past, we will be virtually hosted the the gracious https://cyberia.club/.
