Kubestriker – A Blazing Fast Security Auditing Tool For Kubernetes

Kubestriker performs numerous in depth checks on kubernetes infra to identify the security misconfigurations and challenges that devops engineers/developers are likely to encounter when using Kubernetes, especially in production and at scale.

kubestriker is Platform agnostic and works equally well across more than one platform such as self hosted kubernetes, Amazon EKS, Azure AKS, Google GKE etc.

Types of Scans

Authenticated scans

Authenticated scan expects the user to have atleast read-only privileges and provide a token during the scan. please use the below provided links to create read-only users

Create read-only user for Amazon eks
Create read-only user for Azure aks
Create read-only user for Google gke
Create a subject using Role based access control

# To grab a token from eks cluster
$ aws eks get-token --cluster-name cluster-name --region ap-southeast-2

# To grab a token from aks cluster
$ az aks get-credentials --resource-group myResourceGroup --name myAKSCluster

# To grab a token from gke cluster
$ gcloud container clusters get-credentials CLUSTER_NAME --zone=COMPUTE_ZONE

# To grab a token from service account
$ kubectl -n namespace get secret serviceaccount-token -o jsonpath='{.data.token}'

# To grab a token from a pod directly or via command execution bug
$ cat /run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/token

Unauthenticated scans

Unauthenticated scan will be successful incase of anonymous access is permitted on the target cluster

Identifying an open Insecure port on kubernetes master node

Identifying a worker Node with kubelet readwrite and readonly ports open
