Book Description

The cloud is taking over the Information Technology industry. Any organization that is housing a large amount of data or infrastructure has started moving cloud-ward - and AWS rules the roost when it comes to Cloud Service providers with the closest competitor having less than half of its market share. This brings to light the importance of security on the cloud, especially on AWS. While a lot has been said (and written) about how cloud environments can be secured, performing external security assessments a la penetration tests on AWS still falls into the category of dark arts.

This book aims to help the pentesters as well as seasoned system administrators with a hands-on approach to penetration testing of the various cloud-services provided by Amazon through AWS using Kali Linux. To make things easier for novice penetration testers, the book focuses on building a practice lab and polishing penetration testing with Kali Linux on the cloud. This is not only helpful for beginners but also for a pentester who would want to set up a Pentesting environment in his private cloud, using Kali Linux, to perform a white-box assessment of his own cloud resources. Besides this, there is a lot of in-depth coverage of the large variety of AWS services that are often overlooked during a pentest – from serverless to automated deployment pipelines.

By the end of this book, you will be able to identify possible vulnerable areas efficiently securing your AWS-cloud environment.
