From scondoo API to scondoo Cloud Endpoints


For nearly 4 years we built and used our own API. It was running on Google Cloud Platform. Each time we needed a new endpoint we built it, repeating all the steps you do. There were a lot of special cases, outdated authentication, "code we better not touch" and performance was nothing we were proud of. Then we got to know Cloud Endpoints. So we decided to give it a try. Now we want to share some experience.

Networking with Google Cloud Platform


In this session, we discuss cloud networking best practices for securing traditional and cloud-native workloads on Google Cloud Platform. We start with  the fundamental building blocks including subnetworks, routing and distributed firewall. We then talk about how to share subnetworks between different projects, integrate with Google APIs, load balance your services and integrate your Virtual Network with 3rd party appliances.
