services / Google Cloud / Compute Engine global network endpoint groups

Manage global network endpoint groups (NEGs) for Google Cloud load balancers.

Multiple organizational functions may often reside within Compute Engine. However, abuse of network-endpoint rules requires leveraging additional risks in VM / VPC configuration, such as sensitive data or access broadcast on open VPC ports.


With a NEG on an already accessible network, can be used to connect to sensitive backend services. Can be combined with `create` to broaden attack surface.


Scope: HIGH

This privilege may grant access to sensitive data from a single organizational function, or allow interruption of a service supporting a single organizational function.
