AWS PENETRATION TESTING

aws-penetration-testing

AWS provides over 90 cloud hosting services for tenant businesses, including computation and storage, content delivery, security management, network infrastructure, and physical hosting facilities.
The advantage of employing cloud services is that it allows enterprises and individuals to grow web service needs fast and efficiently on a secure and flexible platform. Simultaneously, maintenance and upfront fixed expenditures associated with network-connected devices are offloaded.
It's crucial to recognise that the AWS platform on which you build your environment cannot be tested. Your organization's AWS platform configuration, as well as any additional application code or assets in your environment, can be tested.

AWS allows security testing for User-Operated Services, which are cloud products that the user creates and configures. An organisation can, for example, completely test its AWS EC2 instance while barring strategies that could affect business continuity, such as initiating DoS assaults.

Vendor Operated Services, or cloud products owned and managed by a third-party vendor, are limited to the implementation and design of the cloud environment rather than the underlying infrastructure. AWS services like Cloud front and the API Gateway setup, for example, can be pen tested, but the hosting infrastructure is not.

AWS' Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) service is frequently penetration probed. Specific places in an AWS EC2 instance that facilitate penetration testing include:
