Tips: Best Practices for The Other Google Compute Engine Resources
In addition to the google_compute_disk, Google Compute Engine has the other resources that should be configured for security reasons. Please check some examples of those resources and precautions.
Ensure the encryption key for your GCE disk is stored securely
It is better to store the encryption key for your GCE disk securely. Secret Manager could be used instead.
Ensure your VPC firewall blocks unwanted outbound traffic
It is better to block unwanted outbound traffic not to expose resources in the VPC to unwanted attacks.
Ensure appropriate service account is assigned to your GCE instance
It is better to create a custom service account for the instance and assign it.
Ensure OS login for your GCE instances is enabled at project level
It is better to enable OS login for your GCE instances. Enabling OS login ensures that SSH keys used to connect to instances are mapped with IAM users, allowing centralized and automated SSH key management.
Ensure to use modern TLS protocols
It's better to adopt TLS v1.2+ instead of outdated TLS protocols.
Ensure VPC flow logging is enabled
It is better to enable VPC flow logging. VPC flow logging allows us to audit traffic in your network.
