Transit Gateway Peering Attachment Accepter Accepter Terraform Module

View SourceRelease Notes

This Terraform Module creates Transit Gateway peering resources for the accepter side of the connection. This allows for connectivity between multiple regions or multiple AWS accounts. Transit Gateway peering is a one-to-one relationship between two transit gateways. If you need to peer multiple transit gateways, you will need to create multiple transit gateway peering attachments.

See VPC Core Concepts for more information on the core networking components and topologies.

What is a Transit Gateway Peering Attachment Accepter?

A transit gateway peering attachment accepter is a way to connect two transit gateways to each other. Much like the VPC attachment, this can be thought of as a network cable. By attaching them, you 'plug' the two transit gateways together. This allows you to route traffic between the two transit gateways. Unlike VPC attachments, peering attachments have two components to the attachment a requester and an accepter. This is important because each attachment must be accepted prior to the attachment being completed. This is a security measure to ensure a malicious attachment from a random account does not gain network access to your environment. The accepter is the side of the peering attachment that accepts the request from the requester.
