An Internet Gateway (IGW) is an AWS component that provides a path for network traffic to travel between a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and the public internet. It acts as a bridge between the two networks, enabling inbound and outbound connections from resources within the VPC. IGWs are associated with subnets, allowing communication between instances in those subnets and other networks or services outside of AWS. Additionally, IGWs can be used to enable access to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Simple Storage Service (S3), Relational Database Service (RDS), and other AWS services outside of VPCs.

An EC2 Internet Gateway (IGW) is an AWS component that provides a path between a virtual private cloud (VPC) and the public internet. It is an AWS-managed component that connects to the public internet through an Amazon-owned IP address. The IGW accepts requests from the VPC, allowing communication between instances within the VPC and external resources such as websites or other cloud services. The IGW also has a default route configured in its route table to send outbound traffic from instances in the VPC to the public internet. In order for communication between your VPC and other services, you must create a virtual private network (VPN) connection with your IGW.
