Step 1

Open AWS Management -> Network & Security -> Security Groups -> Create security group

Step 2

  • Security group name - it is up to you
  • VPC - Select the appropriate VPC (if you are using VPC peering, you can later update the rules for your VPC security groups to reference security groups in the peered VPC. In case you are using a Transit Gateway, note that spoke Amazon VPCs cannot reference security groups in other spokes connected to the same AWS Transit Gateway)
  • Add an inbound rule with the following information
    • Type - All traffic
    • Protocol - All
    • Port range - All
    • Source - Custom - Enter the IP of your GoodAccess Gateway
    • Create :)

Step 3

Attach resources to the security group

  • Return to the EC2 dashboard
  • Select the Instances tab within the Instances section
  • Select the instance you would like to apply the Security Group to (select Actions /Networking /Change Security Groups)
  • Select the newly created security group, then select Assign security group
