Google Cloud SQL and Public IP Address Security

Posted on February 19, 2019 at 11:43 am

When you create a SQL cloud instance and you use a public IP address (external IP) on the SQL instance, make sure that your Compute Engine instances that will connect to the public IP of the SQL instance will have a static IP address and not temporary, else if the IP address is temporary it may be assigned to other users and they may be able to login to the public IP address of the SQL instance.

Small tip that can improve the security of your SQL instance!
