Why this tool?

Cloud Security Suite (CS Suite) is a security toolkit that allows scanning Amazon, Google, and Azure cloud platforms. It leverages tools like Lynis, Prowler, and Scout2 to collect all information. The promise of the tool is to simplify the installation of the tools, their configuration, and the data collection.

How it works

CS Suite can be seen as a wrapper around other powerful utilities. It collects basic information about its environment and then runs the underlying tools. This is done by calling the tools with the appropriate parameters and collect the data. Depending on the data that is returned, the tool will run more commands or tests.

Background information

During our review of CS Suite, we noticed that several of underlying tools where not up-to-date. This is caused by bundling the tools in the toolkit. This might be a risk, as outdated tools might be used and decreasing the quality of the overall audit.

Usage and audience

Cloud Security Suite is commonly used for configuration audit, IT audit, penetration testing, or system hardening. Target users for this tool are auditors, pentesters, security professionals, and system administrators.
