We follow a systematic and yet agile approach to test website security. This helps our customers gain an extremly accurate and elaborate results along with a knowledge base and years of experience on the subject matter.
Cloud Penetration Testing is an authorised derived cyber-attack against a system that is hosted on a Cloud provider, e.g. Amazon's AWS or Microsoft's Azure.
The main goal of a cloud penetration check is to seek out the weaknesses and strengths of a system, so its security posture may be accurately assessed.
WHAT PENETRATION TESTING CAN BE PERFORMED IN AWS?
AWS permits security testing for User-Operated Services, which includes cloud offerings created and configured by the user. For example an example, a corporation can totally take a look at their AWS EC2 instance excluding techniques associated with disruption of business continuity like launching Denial of Service (DOS) attacks.
Pentests involving vendor Operated Services, that are those cloud offerings that are in hand and managed by a third-party vendors, are restricted to the implementation and configuration of the cloud setting and not the underlying infrastructure. For example, AWS services like Cloudfront and the API gateway configuration is also pentested however the hosting infrastructure is off limits. Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) is an AWS service that is usually penetration tested. In an AWS EC2 instance, specific areas that enable penetration testing include:
The cloud security is assessed through testing it against OWASP Top 10 issues.
The OWASP Cloud top ten provides tips on what organizations ought to specialize in once coming up with and establishing cloud environments.
They are professionals who have no knowledge of the internal structure of the system or the network.
They are professionals with partial knowledge of the internal workings of an application or networks. This test often reveals context specific errors related to the web applications
For certain vulnerabilities like cross site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection, automated scanning tools are used as they have the ability to find the vulnerabilities quickly and systematically. Whereas manual testing is used to cross check false-positive or false-negative results shown by automated testing tools and to run customized scripts to identify application-specific vulnerabilities.
Also known as foot printing. It?s a process of gathering data or preliminary inspection of an area of interest over a short period of time.
Collect more detailed information based on previous phase. Also known as enumeration
This is the actual attack phase; so, the risk level is considered highest
If the intentions of the hacker will not be satisfied by acquiring access then maintaining that access is also important.
It is in the best interest of the hacker to erase his fingerprints from the scene. Rootkits to an extent does the job, but a hacker can modify log files to hide all those programs or applications that he has installed, from the view of the computer system.
Keeping a record of the scans or reports gathered from the attack/scan performed.
Detailed technical report In the detailed technical report we include the entire process followed while performing VAPT on cloud based web application or any services. It includes the tests performed, vulnerabilities found, risk severity, attachment of the evidences, etc.
Executive summary It contains brief explanation of the entire Process and the finding. To make it more understandable for clients we also use graphical and chart representation of the vulnerabilities found and attacks possible on the same
High level fixation solutionswe not only deliver you our findings on the vulnerabilities and risks, but also share the best possible solutions for the same. Our fixation solutions are also found much accurate and efficient by our customers/clients.
