Service Publishing is an essential capability provided by New Edge. Service Publishing makes enterprise applications and services running in your AWS environment available to your users in a secure manner. A key technology component of New Edge’s Secure Application Network is the New Edge Publisher.
The New Edge Publisher is a pre-packaged software component that is used to connect your private applications to New Edge without requiring you to expose those applications (or the underlying computing resources) to the Internet. A publisher can be deployed in your AWS VPC in a matter of minutes.
Following is a description of AWS security policies that we recommend you apply to your Publisher and the private resources you want to make available through New Edge.
New Edge Publishers require the following:
Note: Publishers do not require inbound network access. This is one of the primary security advantages of New Edge over remote-access VPNs, proxy servers, or bastion hosts. However, providing temporary inbound SSH access to your publisher can be useful in PoC scenarios to aid in troubleshooting.
Update your existing security groups to allow access from your New Edge Publisher to the services you plan to publish.
This article describes how to create a new security group for your New Edge publisher. This security group configuration will allow the publisher to reach required services, like DNS and the New Edge Cloud, and the services you plan to publish. The article also described how to update your existing EC2 security groups so that your publisher can reach your private applications.
