VPC Network Access Analyzer can be used to determine the desired connection between AWS resources. You can use existing scopes, copy and customize the existing scope, or create new ones from scratch.
The Network Access Analyzer is able to verify the following requirements.
Network Segmentation
Internet Accessibility
Trusted Network Path
Trusted Network Access
2. Overview of VPC Network Analyzer

Network Access Analyzer uses inference algorithms to analyze network paths packets can follow between resources within our AWS network. It then returns the results for the path that corresponds with the customer-defined network area. It then performs a static network analysis. This means that no packets are sent to the network during this analysis. Network Access Analyzer is limited to the network conditions as described in the network configuration. This analysis does not include packet loss due temporary network interruptions and service outages.
3. Findings: Supported Source and Destination Resources
Network Access Analyzer is used to determine the network path that a packet may take within a network. The Network Access Analyzer only can find network paths that begin or end at these types of resources.
Network Interfaces
VPC Interface Endpoints
VPC Service Endpoints
Virtual Private Gateways
Internet Gateways
Transit Gateway Attachments
VPC gateway endpoints
VPC peering connections
4. Findings: Supported Path Resources
Network Access Analyzer network paths can pass through multiple resources, from the beginning to the end.
Internet gateways
Load balancers (except Gateway Load Balancers).
NAT gateways
Network ACLs
Firewalls for network networks
Network interfaces
