Practical DevOps Security and Exploitation training

. 2 min read

We are proud to announce that Attify will be conducting a 2-day hands-on training class on DevOps security and exploitation. This is one of our new offerings resulting from our extensive experience on pentesting and exploiting corporate infrastructure, CI systems and various DevOps tools used in these environments.

We have conducted this training to some of our corporate clients in the past and this is our first public class. We will be covering a number of topics such as Exploiting popular code versioning systems, orchestration tools, build servers and container platforms.

This course is ideal for you both if you’re a pentester wanting to get into DevOps exploitation or you are a DevOps engineer wanting to learn about how attackers can break into your infrastructure using vulnerabilities in these tools and platforms.

A detailed outline is given below:

  • Code Versioning Systems (Git, GitHub, Bitbucket etc.)- Exploiting the product features

  • Finding existing exploits or implementation loopholes

  • Identifying historically stored sensitive information

  • Hardening and Securing Guidelines

  • Orchestration Tools (Ansible, Saltstack etc.)- Exploiting the access rights and configuration mistakes

  • Use of Orchestration tools to mass deploy the exploits

  • Finding sensitive information

  • Guidelines to securely configure and organise the orchestration tools

  • Build Servers (Jenkins, Hudson etc.)- Pentesting and Vulnerability Assessment

  • Risk involved with Plugins

  • Exploiting most common configuration mistakes

  • Breaking the boundaries with superuser access rights

  • Scheduling vulnerability assessment reports for the CI/CD chain.

  • Guidelines to avoid security issues with integration of various CI/CD tools

  • Container Platform (Docker, Kubernetes etc.)- Pentesting and Vulnerability Assessment

  • Exploiting most common configuration mistakes

  • Guidelines with respect to microservices to avoid bloating containers with superuser access rights

  • Security in Cloud (AWS, Google Cloud etc.)- Configuration best practices for Identity & Access Management Portals

  • Planning right network architecture with use of VPC and VPN

  • Securing instances by running only the required services

  • Configuring instances at the boot time to remove unwanted softwares or upgrade to stable software versions with no known vulnerabilities.

  • Using access tokens and Cloud API’s to regularly rotate keys/passwords.

The seats are limited and we just got notified from the OWASP AppSec team that we have just a few spots left for the class based on our maximum class capacity.
