Course Description

Following secure cloud service design principles is a client consumer's top priority. Applying defense-in-depth principles and using cloud service provider security enablers can help achieve this.

You'll start this course by examining the cloud service security taxonomy, identity and access management in cloud environments, authentication mechanisms provided by cloud platforms, and the components of an IAM strategy in the cloud.

Next, you'll investigate the benefits of single sign-on, the prominent types of multi-factor authentication (MFA), and the fundamental design principles of federation. You'll then examine the Cloud Federation Reference Architecture.

Moving on, you'll recognize common cloud deployment and enterprise data center security practices. You'll use Active Directory Federation Services to implement federated authentication, manage access to AWS resources, and enable virtual MFA devices for IAM users in public cloud.

You can use this course in preparation for the CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ (CLO-002) certification exam.
