Using IPV6 with AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

Video Description

The IoT, mobile devices, and governmental requirements are making IPV6 a mandatory part of system design. This class describes how IPV6 works, how it's different from IPV4, and how to set up and secure your Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) in Amazon Web Services (AWS) using IPV6.

The class covers setting up IPV6 VPCs, upgrading existing IPV4 VPCs, network security, and how to troubleshoot your networks. Learners should have previous experience with the AWS management console, network administration, and the Linux CLI.

  • Learn how to create, administer and troubleshoot an IPV6 AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
  • Discover the techniques used to create auditable security for an IPV6 network
  • Boost your ability to plan and design networks for growth and change
  • Acquire the IPV6 and Amazon Web Services VPC knowledge that can future-proof system designs
