The secret manager is sooo good at hiding things that the API or AWS CLI does not show you secrets scheduled for deletion… But you can cheat your way around this. The GOpher can discover the secret…

Even when safely storing your MFA tokens using the Token2 Molto-2 device, some things are not quite optimal. You have to use special Windows-only software to program new accounts, it is not PIN-protected, and things could be better in terms of usability. If you have a bit more of a budget, the Reiner SCT tanJack Deluxe might solve your problems. Let’s have a look at this device.
Everybody knows you should protect your AWS accounts (and other logins) with MFA against brute-force attacks. Most of the account providers use a standardized algorithm (RFC 6238) to generate the famous six-digit TOTP codes for your login. But where do you store those securely? Today, we will look at the alternatives and a specific device: The Molto-2.
Find all Lambda-Runtimes in all Accounts: Multi Account Query with steampipe and TASFKAS (the AWS service formerly known as SSO *)
You have got some mails from AWS: [Action Required] AWS Lambda end of support for Node.js 12 [Action Required] AWS Lambda end of support for Python 3.6 [Solution Required] Search all Lambdas in multiple accounts. [Solution Found] Steampipe with AWS multi-account support. Multi-account management is like managing all the arms of a Kraken. I will show you a fast and straightforward solution for this. (* the new offical name is IAM Identity Center, but I think TASFKAS would also fit 😉)
AWS Config checks all your resources for compliance. With 260 managed rules, it covers a lot of ground. But if you need additional checks until now, you had to write a complex Lambda function. With the new “Custom Policy” type, it is possible to use declarative Guard rules. Custom Policy rules use less lines of code and are so much easier to read.
The project steampipe uses a fast programing language and an intelligent caching approach outrunning prowler speed tenfold. While I tried to workaround prowlers limits I learned a lot about optimizing.
There is a conflict between developer freedom and the requirements of security teams. In this post we’ll look at one approach to address this tension: permission boundaries. They’re an often overlooked part of IAM, but provide a valuable addition to our security toolkit.
Over the last years, demands and expectations on data security have increased dramatically. The main drivers are local data privacy regulations like the EU-GDPR, which imply awareness of sensitive data and an overview of potential risks. Amazon has offered its service Macie in 2017, added new capabilities lately, and is doing a great job with data on S3. But how do you include your EFS/FSx file shares and RDS databases to eliminate blind spots? Meet NetApp Cloud DataSense.
