OpenStack natively provides isolation between tenants. The default set of rules in place when a new tenant is created allows for any outbound communication, but no inbound. Security groups are the mechanism we can use to modify these rules. This session will cover the basics of creating security groups for both ingress and egress. We will share strategies for leveraging security groups to enforce an organization's best practices and nesting security groups to combine rules that match specific application needs.
