What is AWS Penetration Testing?

AWS penetration testing is a type of assessment designed to identify and address vulnerabilities within Amazon AWS infrastructures that could be exploited by hackers. Amazon provides a number of security measures for experienced users, but it is each user’s responsibility to maintain the stability and security of their environment. Our services allow you to validate that your configurations are secure and determine exactly how your infrastructure may be compromised.

Traditional Pentest vs AWS Penetration Test

Traditional and AWS infrastructures are significantly different from configurations to user permissions. Both technology stacks could not differ more in the way they function and in the way their security is managed. In order to test this highly flexible and scalable environment, our experts have designed a methodology that specifically aims to identify common security issues within AWS. Our tests target the following but are not limited to:

EC2 instances and applications

AWS IAM user access keys

S3 bucket configurations & permissions

Lambda backdoor functions

Cloudtrail logs obfuscation

AWS APIs & Cloudfront

Common AWS Exploits

We attempt various types of attacks commonly used by hackers to exploit your AWS infrastructure, including but not limited to:

Root certificate and SSH keys manipulation

Subdomain takeover

Business logic exploitation

AWS roles enumeration

Unauthenticated S3 bucket access

User privilege escalation

EC2 instance exploitation

Data exfiltration

The cost of a penetration test varies significantly according to a number of factors. For this reason, there is no established price range for this type of assessment. Each project is tailored to your objectives and your environment. To find out how much your penetration test would cost, reach out to our specialists to get a free quote.

Manual penetration tests and fully automated scanners are the most common techniques to identify and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities within your technologies. While many similarities exist between the two, they are often misinterpreted as the same thing, although they yield very different results.

Every professional in the industry agrees that cyber risks cannot be sufficiently mitigated by relying on automated scans alone. It can be a great starting point for those who lack the resources to undergo frequent manual tests, but should not be your only resort to test your cybersecurity.

Upon completion of the test, your company receives a report detailing all of the findings. This document is broken down in several sections that are relevant for various stakeholders. A professional penetration testing report should always present the following items:

  • An executive summary that outlines the findings in a clear and concise language. This section should be easily understood by your non-technical staff and acts as a key component of your risk management strategy.
  • Vulnerability listing prioritized by risk level. 
  • Technical details of the identified vulnerabilities including their potential impact if exploited and supporting evidence (screenshots, HTTP requests, etc.).
  • Actionable recommendations to fix each identified vulnerability.
  • External references to facilitate the implementation of the recommended corrective measures.

Various steps are taken by our specialists to prevent the potential impact of our tests on the stability of your technological environment and the continuity of your business operations.

Unless specifically instructed to, our specialists refrain from performing any disruptive types of attacks that can, for example, cause denial of service. Thereby, most of our clients are unable to perceive any impact of our tests due to the rigorous measures we deploy to conduct our projects as seamlessly as possible.
