In this liveProject, you’ll jump into the role of a sysadmin at a logistics software company. Your boss and sales team regularly travel to meet clients, and they want a way to ensure their data is protected when it is transmitted between remote locations. Your idea is to build a reliable and secure private VPN that can be launched on-demand to solve these security issues. You’ll start by creating a simple personal VPN that can protect the URLs you visit when using public internet in a coffee shop, then expand it to an enterprise-scale solution that will work for your whole office. Your final challenge will be to automate the process, so that you can spin up a new VPN in seconds without the costs of constantly running AWS resources.
