Microsoft Azure
Penetration Testing

Identify your insecure configurations / exploitable vulnerabilities and get practical recommendations to secure your infrastructure from cyberattacks.

Why is Azure Penetration Testing Important?

Microsoft Azure provides a number of security measures for experienced users. While this is a good place to start, it is each user’s responsibility to maintain their stability and security. The Azure services provide the structure to create virtual machines, networks, and applications, but it is the end-user that owns them. For this reason, it is essential that your Azure instances also receive regular security audits to protect your most sensitive assets.

What Can We Test in the Microsoft Cloud Ecosystem ?

The approach to Azure penetration testing is different from a typical pentest. Some types of attacks that may, for example, cause a denial of service (DDoS) are strictly prohibited, as they may cause inconveniences for other Azure users. While the rules of engagement from Microsoft regarding what can be tested are not exactly rigid, these assessments can only target specific components in the environment, such as the following:

Azure Pentest Rules of Engagement

Microsoft provides a set of guidelines to follow when performing these types of assessments. Some types of approaches are strictly prohibited to prevent any repercussions on other users. Here are a few approaches recommended by Microsoft for Azure pentesting:

  • Creating test accounts to demonstrate cross-account data access.
  • Fuzzing, port scanning and automated testing on Azure VMs
  • Security monitoring and detection testing
  • Attempting to break out of a shared service container (Such as Azure Functions) - Successful attempts should be disclosed to Microsoft
  • Testing the enforcement/restriction of security policies

Microsoft no longer requires their authorization in order to perform a penetration test of their Cloud environment.

It is recommended to perform a penetration test every year as cyber threats and attack scenarios are constantly evolving. If major changes are made to the infrastructure or if new applications are developed, it is recommended to perform additional tests. This ensures that recent changes did not introduce new vulnerabilities into the environment. Some compliance standards, such as ISO 27001 or PCI DSS, require tests to be performed at a pre-determined frequency to remain compliant. (For example, the PCI-DSS Compliance Requirement 11.3.x requires a penetration test to be performed each year or following each major change to the infrastructure)

We have created a set of virtual images containing all the tools needed to validate the security of cloud environments. For example, we can quickly and easily create a virtual machine for you or provide an OVA / OVF file that can be downloaded with all of our preloaded tools.

We then connect to the test virtual machine and evaluate the systems or applications within your Cloud environment.

At the end of the project, you will be provided with a detailed report that includes all the findings and recommended mitigations. The technical report includes the following:

  • Executive summary presenting the main observations and recommendations.
  • Vulnerability matrix prioritised by risk level.
  • Vulnerabilities details including the following:
    • Risk Level based on potential impact and exploitability.
    • Fixes & Recommendations to fix the identified vulnerabilities.
    • References to external resources to facilitate the implementation of our recommendations.
    • Technical details such as screenshots, system traces, logs, etc.
  • Appendix detailing complementary technical information.
  • Methodology used during the project. (based on recognized standards)
Depending on your context, you will also be provided with an attestation certifying that penetration tests have been performed by experienced professionals using recognized methodologies and standards. This document will allow you to meet compliance and regulatory reporting requirements efficiently and with minimal overhead.
