In GCP, we do not operate with a zone model like with the on-premise clusters. Instead, we rely on a zero trust model with a service mesh. The only thing we differentiate on a cluster level is development and production.

The applications running in GCP need access policy rules defined for every other service they receive requests from or sends requests to.

To access the GCP clusters, see Access.

Accessing the application

Access is controlled in part by ingresses, which define where your application will be exposed as a HTTP endpoint. You can control where your application is reachable from by selecting the appropriate ingress domain.

Warning

Make sure you understand where you expose your application, taking into account the state of your application, what kind of data it exposes and how it is secured. If in doubt, ask in #nais or someone on the NAIS team.

You can control from where you application is reachable by selecting the appropriate ingress domain. If no ingress is selected, the application will not be reachable from outside the cluster.

dev-gcp ingresses

domain accessible from description
ekstern.dev.nav.no internet manually configured by adding to external_domains in load balancer config and making a pull request. URLs containing /metrics, /actuator or /internal are blocked
dev.nav.no naisdevice development ingress for nav.no applications
dev.intern.nav.no naisdevice development ingress for non-public/internet-facing applications
dev-gcp.nais.io naisdevice reserved for platform services
dev.adeo.no deprecated replaced by dev.intern.nav.no

prod-gcp ingresses

domain accessible from description
nav.no internet manually configured, contact at #tech-sikkerhet. URLs containing /metrics, /actuator or /internal are blocked
intern.nav.no naisdevice used by non-public/internet-facing applications (previously called adeo.no).
prod-gcp.nais.io naisdevice reserved for platform services

ROS and PVK

When establishing an application on GCP, it is a great time to update its Risikovurdering (ROS) analysis. It is required to update the application's entry in the Behandlingsoversikt when changing platforms. If both of these words are unfamiliar to your team, it's time to sit down and take a look at both of them.

Every application needs to have a ROS analysis. Applications handling personal information needs a Personvernkonsekvens (PVK) analysis and an entry in the Behandlingsoversikt.

See also additional information about ROS and PVK under Laws and regulations.

Questions about ROS can be directed to Leif Tore Løvmo, while Line Langlo Spongsveen can answer questions about PVK and Behandlingsoversikt.
