Organizations continue to take advantage of Google Cloud Platform's powerful network to deliver enterprise-class applications. Google uses a secure by design infrastructure, built-in protection, and a global network that helps organizations protect their information. In this course, learn about Google Cloud security, security mechanisms, container scanning, and workload identity federation. Discover how to implement Binary Authorization using Cloud Build and GKE, manage notifications with Secret Manager, and use JSON web tokens and OAuth 2.0 to authenticate services. Finally, practice authenticating using asynchronous or synchronous means between services, control communication between services, and use certificate-based authentication to protect resources. This course is one of a collection that prepares learners for the Google Professional Cloud Developer exam.
