(Prevent) Hacking into a CloudService - About security, ECS and terraform AWS UserGroup Hannover Online Meetup Feb, 4th 2021



Yoni: Oftentimes, when we think about protecting resources in the cloud, we immediately think about the typical ways in - via public-facing applications or abuse of credentials. In this talk, we will look at one additional way: through the work unit parameters of a service. During the development of Indeni’s Cloudrail SaaS product, Yoni was responsible for trying to find ways to hack into the service. One of the ways he found, raises questions about how secure ECS workloads really are."

AWS Usergroup Hannover is happy to host this meeting and we are happy that we have Yoni Leitersdorf with us. Why you should also be happy: Se below!

Automated ECS deployments using AWS CodePipeline

When developing applications, particularly in the realm of containerization, CI/CD workflows and pipelines play an important role in ensuring automated testing, security scanning, and seamless deployment. Leveraging a pipeline-based approach enables fast and secure shipping of new features by adhering to a standardized set of procedures and principles. Using the AWS cloud’s flexibility amplifies this process, facilitating even faster development cycles and dependable software delivery. In this blog post, I aim to demonstrate how you can leverage AWS CodePipeline and Amazon ECS alongside Terraform to implement an automated CI/CD pipeline. This pipeline efficiently handles the building, testing, and deployment of containerized applications, streamlining your development and delivery processes. - by Hendrik Hagen
