> Currently, the GCE driver only supports authorization from a perspective that code is
executed "outside" of the GCE environment. However, if code is executed on an instance running
"inside" GCE, it is possible to handle authorization with GCE's internal metadata service
for an access token.
> When an instance is created with appropriate service account scopes, this access token
can be used to provide authorization to access the corresponding Google Cloud services.
