This month we will have our heads in the clouds as Yoni Leitersdorf performs a live demo of 5 days’ worth of research into non-traditional cloud hacking:
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.
As usual these past few months, we will be meeting online at https://cafe.cyberia.club/dc612.
