S3 Objects Check
Whitebox evaluation of effective S3 object permissions, in order to identify publicly accessible objects.
Allows identifying publicly accessible objects, as well as objects accessible for
AuthenticatedUsers (by using a secondary profile). A number of tools exist which check permissions on buckets, but due to the complexity of IAM resource policies and ACL combinations, the effective permissions on specific objects is often hard to assess. The tool runs fast as it uses asyncio and aiobotocore.
The tool leverages two named profiles:
WHITEBOX_PROFILE- this profile should have read access to the S3 service. It will be used to list buckets and objects, which the tool will then attempt to access via unauthenticated requests. It’s not used to access the objects, only to list them.
BLACKBOX_PROFILE- in addition to the unauthenticated requests, the tool will use this profile to identify objects accessible to the “Authenticated Users group” (
AuthenticatedUsers). This profile should not have access to the S3 buckets/objects, otherwise it will raise false positives.
Setup a virtual environment and install dependencies:
1 2 3 $ virtualenv -p python3 venv $ source venv/bin/activate $ pip -r requirements.txt
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 $ python s3-objects-check.py -h usage: s3-objects-check.py [-h] -p WHITEBOX_PROFILE -e BLACKBOX_PROFILE [-d] Whitebox evaluation of effective S3 object permissions, to identify publicly accessible files. optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -p WHITEBOX_PROFILE, --profile WHITEBOX_PROFILE The profile with access to the desired AWS account and buckets -e BLACKBOX_PROFILE, --profile-external BLACKBOX_PROFILE An "external" profile to test for 'AuthenticatedUsers' permissions. This principal should not have permissions to read bucket objects. -d, --debug Verbose output. Will also create a log file
Run the tool:
