a Damn Vulnerable Serverless Application
Damn Vulnerable Serverless Application (DVSA) is a deliberately vulnerable application aiming to be an aid for security professionals to test their skills and tools in a legal environment, help developers better understand the processes of securing serverless applications and to aid both students & teachers to learn about serverless application security in a controlled class room environment.
The aim of DVSA is to practice some of the most common serverless vulnerabilities, with a simple straightforward interface.
Please note, there are both documented and undocumented vulnerabilities with this software. This is intentional. You are encouraged to try and discover as many issues as possible.
Do no install DVSA on a production account
We do not take responsibility for the way in which any one uses this application (DVSA). We have made the purposes of the application clear and it should not be used maliciously. We have given warnings and taken measures to prevent users from installing DVSA on to production accounts.
You must run serverless deploy commands with an environemant variable profile (e.g.
AWS_PROFILE=<aws-profile-name>) instead of the serverless argument.
npm install -g serverless
pip install awscli --upgrade --user
npm run-script client:build
sls client deploy
DVSA sends receipts in the email (which will help you in hacking it). You can use the built-in Inbox page within the application to get the emails and obtain the receipts.
Note: each user will be assigned an email from
mailsac.com which will be automatically verified. Real emails will be sent to their account and will appear in the applicaiton Inbox page. All this is transparent to the user and the deployer).
Alternatively, if you want users to receive emails to their registered email account (e.g. gmail), use one of the followings:
- Send an email verification link to email address, by running the following command (after clicking on the received link, emails will also be sent to their actual email addrss):
aws ses verify-email-identity --email-address <your_email>
- Request a sending limit increase. This will allow your entire cloud account to send emails to any address.
