1. Granular Access Control for AI Visualization using Mutual TLS


    To set up granular access control for AI visualization with mutual TLS (mTLS), you need to enforce access policies that validate client certificates at the entry point of your infrastructure. This usually involves configuring a load balancer or API gateway that supports mTLS and managing identity and access control for your services.

    One way to accomplish this scenario in the cloud is by using Google Cloud's Identity-Aware Proxy (IAP), which allows you to set up granular access control to your web applications and cloud resources, and by configuring SSL policies to enforce mTLS.

    However, Pulumi does not currently directly support IAP or mTLS configuration via high-level components in their SDKs as mTLS and advanced access control tend to be specific configurations for each cloud provider's services (like Application Gateway on Azure or ELB on AWS with mTLS listener setup).

    To give you a starting point with Pulumi, I can show you how to create a basic Google Cloud Compute instance with Python, which could later be configured for AI visualization. You can then use Google's documentation or further Pulumi resources to adjust the network settings for mTLS and IAP, manually or through custom Pulumi components.

    Here's a basic Pulumi program in Python to create a Google Compute Engine instance, which you can further configure for your AI visualization needs:

    import pulumi from pulumi_gcp import compute # Create a new Google Compute Engine instance instance = compute.Instance("ai-vis-instance", # Specify the machine type and the image to be used machine_type="n1-standard-1", boot_disk=compute.InstanceBootDiskArgs( initialize_params=compute.InstanceBootDiskInitializeParamsArgs( image="image-id", # Replace 'image-id' with the image appropriate for visualization workloads ), ), network_interfaces=[compute.InstanceNetworkInterfaceArgs( network="default", # Replace 'default' with your VPC network name if needed # Access configurations, such as an external IP address access_configs=[compute.InstanceNetworkInterfaceAccessConfigArgs( nat_ip=None, # If you need an external IP, define it here or allow GCP to auto-assign one )], )], # Metadata is important for configuring access parameters, like mTLS or startup scripts metadata={ "enable-oslogin": "TRUE", # Enable OS Login for IAM-based access control }, ) # Export the instance name and IP for easy access pulumi.export("instance_name", instance.name) pulumi.export("instance_ip", instance.network_interfaces[0].access_configs[0].nat_ip)

    Before you run the Pulumi program, ensure that you have the appropriate Google Cloud SDKs installed, as well as Pulumi configured with the right credentials and project settings.

    This code creates a virtual machine which you can use to host your AI visualization application. Remember that for mutual TLS, you would still need to set up a proper SSL policy, configure client certificates, and use a service such as IAP to enforce access controls according to your requirements.

    You would need to work with Google Cloud documentation or other resources to implement mTLS properly, as it involves certificate management that is typically handled outside of infrastructure as code platforms like Pulumi.

    Please note that while Pulumi supports creating and managing many types of cloud resources, the configuration of advanced networking and security features like mTLS often requires manual setup or the development of custom Pulumi components.
