Amazon web services is a subsidiary of amazon.com which provides on-demand cloud computing services. ‘Pay for what you use’ feature.‎ It also provides distributed computing by allowing us to access multiple virtual instances at the same time. It emulates almost all of the IT infrastructure services including networking and system administration. It operates through server farms spread throughout the world from where the instances can be accessed. Whereas some services are provided through the rest API call of specific service.

AWS Architecture

AWS provides you with a flexible architecture

● The main component of AWS is EC2 or Elastic compute cloud which provides services based on the configuration of virtual instances.

● Aws has a networked architecture which consists of mainly 3 components, such as the internet, AWS region and database called bucket.

Aws region - Any geographical location wherein instances are deployed, all the regions are connected via the internet regions. Provides facilities to access the virtual instances based on your AWS configurations. Within a region, there are multiple EC2 instances configured.‎

AWS uses load balancing to effectively distribute the traffic across multiple EC2 instances to lower the network traffic load.Also, there is a layer of security for each EC2 instance called security groups where traffic is routed through a firewall between the instance and internet or instance and database.‎

EC2 instances use S3 or Simple Storage Service to store and retrieve data from a repository or database which is accessed using an elastic IP address. Also, every instance has a volume for storing data and logs called elastic block storage[EBS] which is for backup purposes, in case the database encounters a fatal error.‎

AWS uses ARDS or amazon relational database system RDBS to manage the database using queries similar to Mysql or ORACLE database. Within the database, all the data is stored in resources called buckets, amazon S3 directly interacts with buckets to store and retrieve data.‎

VPS or virtual private server allows you to deploy cloud resources onto a user-defined private network which can be defined according to the subnet scheme of the resources.In addition to this AWS has many other advanced features for advanced computing technologies such as blockchain and IOT services‎

To deliver contents from S3 buckets to various access locations, AWS uses a feature called Cloudfront which creates a network between them. The locations are referred to as edges, the nearest edge is determined by various factors such as routing speed, the bandwidth of the network, etc.‎

AWS managed blockchain is a service that creates and manages blockchain networks for the resources using standard blockchain platforms like Ethereum. AWS IOT core is a cloud service mainly for connecting and managing various types of devices across the AWS network. ‎

AWS Security Practices:- AWS Security Practices:- AWS Security Practices:-

  • Use a strong password for your resources – always have a security layer of a complex password for securing your AWS resources as any attacker can have unauthorized access by cracking your simple password. You can create and manage passwords with any third party password management tool. ‎
  • Use multi-factor authentication – MFA or multi-factor authentication is an additional layer of security on top of username and password. ‎
  • It can be some information based on the device you want to secure or some kind of token or captcha.‎
  • Use group policies to restrict access – to protect your resources from unprivileged access user identity and access management to create users, groups and roles based on the privileges you want to grant the users.‎
  • Never store your access keys – though you can access your resources easily using access keys in the command line, it can sometimes prove fatal, so delete them and create a user and grant privileges to access the resources using API.‎
  • Enable Amazon CloudTrail – by starting Cloudtrail, you can track activity performed on your resources, this way you can get alerts if anybody tries to get unauthorized access to your resources.‎

Security Testing of AWS - Here are some methods to perform AWS security testing to help identify and mitigate threats:-

Unauthorized access in Bucket – the most critical part of AWS is the database or buckets, where most of the attacks are targeted, so try to test if the database can be easily accessed by performing SQL injection attacks.‎

Extracting keys from ec2 instance – AWS has a feature to directly access resources from the command line using special keys called access keys, but it may prove fatal if an attacker accesses them, so try to infiltrate the services and find the keys to check whether the keys can be directly accessed.

Analyze network traffic logs – if the AWS deployment has Cloudtrail enabled, which monitors and logs network traffic, try to analyze the logs to find any threat to prevent it.

Stealing Virtual Images – Sometimes attackers can try to steal the virtual instance images to steal user data, so also test whether the instances can be directly accessed or there is some kind of encryption to protect the directory where the instance image is stored.

Security visibility is yet another loophole which gets magnified at the time of implementation and management of applications.
