What is Cloud penetration testing?
Cloud penetration testing is the practice of performing offensive security tests on a cloud in order to identify security flaws before hackers do. The main aim of cloud penetration testing is to evaluate how effective the security controls are and identify any vulnerabilities that can be safely exploited and remediated before they can be exploited by malicious attackers.
What distinguishes cloud penetration testing from standard penetration testing?
Penetration testing, in simple terms, refers to conducting security tests on a system, service, or network to identify its vulnerabilities. On the other hand, Cloud penetration testing involves simulating an attack on your cloud services to evaluate their security.
Traditional penetration testing methodologies are not cloud-native and only focus on processes relevant to on-premise environments. Unlike traditional penetration testing, cloud penetration testing focuses on cloud-specific configurations, passwords, applications, encryption, APIs, databases, and storage access. It also requires specific expertise and takes into account the Shared Responsibility Model, which defines who is responsible for different components within a cloud infrastructure, platform, or software

The Most Common Cloud Security Threats
Cloud penetration testing can aid in the prevention of the following types of cloud security threats
- Breach of Data
- Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)
- Compromises in the Supply Chain
- Inadequate Identities and Credentials
- Poor Access Management
- Insecure APIs and interfaces
- Unsuitable Use or Abuse of Cloud Services
- Shared Services and Technology Issues

What we can offer to you in cloud pen testing
Cloud Configuration Review is an evaluation of your Cloud configuration against industry best practices and benchmarks. A report is created that includes a summary table that shows the benchmarks and whether you are following best practices, as well as individual technical findings in more detail, detailed explanation, and remediation advice.
Cloud Penetration Testing employs a combination of external and internal penetration testing techniques to examine the organization's external posture. Unprotected server blobs and S3 buckets, servers with management ports open to the internet, and poor egress controls are examples of vulnerabilities discovered through this type of active testing.
Cloud pen-testing, whether it is a configuration review, a penetration test, or both, is concerned with analyzing the security in the following key areas:
- External attack surface – Identify all possible entry points – Web Applications, Storage Blobs, S3 Buckets, O365, SQL/RDS Databases, Azure Automation APIs, AWS APIs, Remote Desktops, VPNs, and others.
- Authentication and Authorization Testing – Ensure that users in the environment follow the Principle of Least Privilege, are protected by robust multi-factor authentication policies, and that known ‘bad passwords' are not used.
- Virtual Machines / EC2 – Azure provides two types of virtual machines: Classic and v2. These virtual machines will be tested to ensure that they are protected by Network Security Groups (NSGs – similar to firewalls) and that their data is encrypted at rest. Audits of missing patches and their effects are included wherever possible. In the places where virtual machines are publicly accessible, the external interfaces of those machines will be examined.
- Storage and Databases – This area of testing will actually analyze the storage blob permissions as well as subfolder permissions to ensure that only authenticated and authorised users can access the data contained within. Examining the database (either on virtual machines running SQL Server or on physical machines).
Authorization and Policies for Cloud Penetration Testing
Before beginning a penetration test, Microsoft (Azure) and Amazon (AWS) used to require testing authorization. This is no longer an issue, but apart from a few AWS exceptions, you are no longer required to request authorization for a cloud penetration test for Azure, AWS, or GCP.
