Do you want to level up your cloud penetration testing skills? The attack surface of many organizations has changed to include third-party hosted services such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. In this training course, hacking concepts will be introduced for each of those services.
This training walks through a complete penetration testing methodology of cloud-based infrastructure. Starting with no information other than the company name you will learn to discover what cloud-specific assets your target is using. Following the enumeration of cloud services, you will learn how to discover misconfigurations that commonly expose sensitive data as well as a thorough understanding of how to get an initial foothold into a cloud-based organization.
Post-compromise techniques of cloud infrastructure differ from the techniques used in typical on-premise environments. You will learn situational awareness techniques that ultimately will impact how you will escalate privileges in the cloud. With most cloud-based authentication being publicly exposed this presents new and interesting persistence techniques that are non-existent to on-premise environments. With productivity tools like G-Suite and Microsoft 365 many organizations are making their email and other data that is normally protected by a firewall available to remote employees. You will learn how to discover, pillage, and exfiltrate data from these services.
Many organizations are fully leveraging cloud services for their production infrastructure. This can include web servers, SQL databases, storage, virtual machines, and more. In this training, you will learn how to assess and compromise these resources. Some cloud deployments are directly connected to on-premise environments via VPN. This presents an opportunity to pivot access from cloud to on-prem or vice-versa.
Finally, in this training, we will not only be attacking cloud infrastructure but also leveraging it for red team operations. You will learn techniques that leverage cloud services for techniques such as phishing, domain fronting, and command & control.
Tools and techniques used on real-world penetration tests against cloud assets will be shared including hands-on demonstrations. At the end of this training, you will have new skills for assessing cloud-based infrastructure!
