Cloud Security Assessment
Internal cloud networks, virtual machines hosted in the cloud, external cloud services, and cloud setups may all be subject to penetration testing. User privileges, access constraints, and hosted services may all be examined.
What makes this testing different?
What are the benefits of cloud penetration testing?
In the context of the shared responsibility paradigm, cloud penetration testing focuses on the security of the cloud rather than the security of the cloud itself. The security of some cloud components stays under the control and administration of the cloud service provider (CSP), while the security of other components is the responsibility of the client, as shown in the diagram below. A customer's "service level agreement" (SLA) specifies the type and extent of cloud penetration testing that is permitted, as well as the frequency with which it may be performed.
What are the different types and methods of cloud penetration testing?
- Black Box Penetration Testing—An attack scenario in which the cloud penetration testers don't know anything about your cloud systems and don't have access to them.
- Grey Box Penetration Testing—Cloud penetration testers have a limited understanding of users and systems and may be given restricted administrative access.
- White Box Penetration Testing—Cloud penetration testers have access to cloud systems at the admin or root level.
What is our methodology?
Evaluation, exploitation, and remediation are the three steps of cloud penetration testing.
