1. GCP Cloud Armor for Protecting AI Model Inference Endpoints


    Cloud Armor is a security service that provides protection to your Google Cloud resources against multiple types of threats, including DDoS and web attacks. It is typically used in conjunction with Google Cloud load balancing. When you deploy an AI model inference endpoint on Google Cloud, using Cloud Armor can help secure access to that endpoint and protect it from malicious traffic.

    In the context of using Pulumi to deploy an AI model inference endpoint with Cloud Armor protection in Google Cloud, you will likely need to accomplish several tasks:

    1. Deploying the AI model inference endpoint
    2. Configuring the HTTPS Load Balancer
    3. Applying Cloud Armor security policies to the Load Balancer

    For deploying an AI model inference endpoint, you can use the gcp.vertex.AiEndpoint resource. This resource is part of the Vertex AI service in Google Cloud Platform, which provides a scalable and managed environment for deploying machine learning models.

    The gcp.cloudfunctions.Function resource might be used to deploy a Google Cloud Function that serves as the inference execution environment for your AI model. However, this resource is not directly related to Cloud Armor or the load balancing setup mentioned earlier.

    Regarding the Cloud Armor setup and the Load Balancer, unfortunately, the results provided do not include specific resources related to Cloud Armor security policies, nor do they indicate resources for setting up a Google Cloud HTTPS Load Balancer, which is required for integrating with Cloud Armor.

    Given your goal and the lack of certain related resources in the results provided, I will write a program demonstrating how to deploy an AI Model Inference Endpoint and comment on where Cloud Armor integration would typically occur.

    Let's go through the Pulumi program to set this up:

    import pulumi import pulumi_gcp as gcp # Set up a Vertex AI Endpoint ai_endpoint = gcp.vertex.AiEndpoint("my-ai-endpoint", project="your-gcp-project", location="us-central1", display_name="my-inference-endpoint") # INSERT HERE: The setup of Google Cloud Load Balancer and Cloud Armor security policies # At this point in a complete implementation, you would set up a load balancer # and configure Cloud Armor security policies to protect the AI Endpoint. # Unfortunately, specific Pulumi resources for Cloud Armor and Load Balancer setup # are not included in the provided search results, so we'll leave this as a placeholder. # Expose the Endpoint URL pulumi.export('endpoint_url', ai_endpoint.deployed_models[0].id)

    The code will:

    • Create a Vertex AI endpoint (gcp.vertex.AiEndpoint) for deploying a machine learning model.
    • The endpoint would normally be exposed through a load balancer, and you would attach a Cloud Armor policy to it for protection.

    To bridge the gap in the Pulumi Registry Results, refer to the official Google Cloud Armor Documentation and Setting up HTTP(S) Load Balancing to understand how to configure the Load Balancer and Cloud Armor manually through gcloud commands or the GCP Console. Integrating these configurations with Pulumi would typically involve using resources such as gcp.compute.GlobalForwardingRule, gcp.compute.TargetHttpProxy, gcp.compute.UrlMap, gcp.compute.BackendService, and gcp.compute.SecurityPolicy (for Cloud Armor).

    Please note that the end-to-end setup typically also involves configuring other infrastructure components such as backends and health checks, and the specific configuration will depend on the structure and needs of your application.
