info

This security check is part of the CIS Amazon Web Services Benchmarks and is rated severity high.

Prerequisites‚Äč

This guide assumes that you have already installed and configured Resoto to collect your AWS resources.

Directions‚Äč

  1. Execute the following search command in Resoto Shell or Resoto UI:

    > search is(aws_s3_bucket) {account_setting: <-[0:]- is(aws_account) --> is(aws_s3_account_settings)} (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_acls==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_acls==false) or (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.ignore_public_acls==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.ignore_public_acls==false) or (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_policy==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_policy==false) or (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.restrict_public_buckets==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.restrict_public_buckets==false)
    ‚Äčkind=aws_s3_bucket, ..., region=resoto-poweruser
    ‚Äčkind=aws_s3_bucket, ..., account=poweruser-team
  2. Pipe the search command into the dump command:

    > search is(aws_s3_bucket) {account_setting: <-[0:]- is(aws_account) --> is(aws_s3_account_settings)} (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_acls==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_acls==false) or (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.ignore_public_acls==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.ignore_public_acls==false) or (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_policy==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.block_public_policy==false) or (bucket_public_access_block_configuration.restrict_public_buckets==false and account_setting.reported.bucket_public_access_block_configuration.restrict_public_buckets==false) | dump
    ‚Äčreported:
    ‚Äč id: /aws/s3/123
    ‚Äč name: some-name
    ‚Äč ctime: '2022-12-05T22:53:14Z'
    ‚Äč kind: aws_s3_bucket
    ‚Äč age: 2mo28d

    The command output will list the details of all non-compliant aws_s3_bucket resources.

Remediation‚Äč

Enable Public Access Block at the account level to prevent the exposure of your data stored in S3.
