Google Professional Cloud Security Engineer Exam Prep notes - Part 2

  This blog covers review notes for logging, DNS security & Google Cloud web Security Scanner Service

1. Aggregated sinks
Sinks can be constructed with the "includeChildren" parameter set to "True" for cloud organisation / folders. The logs from these organizations , folders , projects or billing accounts can be routed to these sinks.
2. DNS security extension
DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) is the security protocol that enables authentication of DNS data. It is a DNS protocol extension that adds an additional degree of security by enabling users to digitally sign their DNS records, making it more challenging for attackers to tamper with DNS data. Customers can enable DNSSEC on Google Cloud's Cloud DNS service to safeguard their domains from unauthorized alterations.

3. Google Cloud web Security Scanner Service
To find common vulnerabilities in web applications, such as those listed in the OWASP Top 10, customers can use the Google cloud web security scanner service. It has the ability to scan App Engine-based applications as well as those hosted on other systems like Compute Engine or Kubernetes Engine. It can help identify vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting(XSS), SQL injection and missing security headers. Though not a replacement for security review or penetration testing, it can be used in conjunction with such measures to check for new vulnerabilities
