AWS-Threat-Simulation-and-Detection – Playing Around With Stratus Red Team (Cloud Attack Simulation Tool) And SumoLogic

This repository is a documentation of my adventures with Stratus Red Team – a tool for adversary emulation for the cloud.

Stratus Red Team is “Atomic Red Team for the cloud, allowing to emulate offensive attack techniques in a granular and self-contained manner.

We run the attacks covered in the Stratus Red Team repository one by one on our AWS account. In order to monitor them, we will use CloudTrail and CloudWatch for logging and ingest these logs into SumoLogic for further analysis.
