Credulous

credulous is a command line tool that manages AWS (IAM) Credentials securely. The aim is to encrypt the credentials using a user's public SSH Key so that only the user who has the corresponding private SSH key is able to see and use them. Furthermore the tool will also enable the user to easily rotate their current credentials without breaking the user's current workflow.

Main Features

  • Your IAM Credentials are securely encrypted on disk.
  • Easy switching of Credentials between Accounts/Users.
  • Painless Credential rotation.
  • Enables rotation of Credentials by external application/service.
  • No external runtime dependencies beyond minimal platform-specific shared libraries

Installation

For Linux (.RPM or .DEB packages)

Download your Linux package

For OSX

If you are using Homebrew you can follow these steps to install Credulous

  1. localhost$ brew install bash-completion
  2. Add the following lines to your ~/.bash_profile:
if [ -f $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion ]; then
    . $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion
fi
  1. localhost$ brew install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/realestate-com-au/credulous-brew/master/credulous.rb
  2. Add the following lines to your ~/.bash_profile:
if [ -f $(brew --prefix)/etc/profile.d/credulous.sh ]; then
    . $(brew --prefix)/etc/profile.d/credulous.sh
fi

Command completion

Command completion makes credulous much more convenient to use.

OSX: brew install bash-completion

Centos: Enable EPEL repo and install bash-completion

Debian/Ubuntu: bash-completion is installed and enabled by default. Enjoy!

Usage

Credentials need to have the right to inspect the account alias, list access keys and examine the username of the user for whom they exist. An IAM policy snippet like this will grant sufficient permissions:

{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Sid": "PermitViewAliases",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [ "iam:ListAccountAliases" ],
            "Resource": "*"
        },
        {
            "Sid": "PermitViewOwnDetails",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "iam:ListAccessKeys",
                "iam:GetUser"
            ],
            "Resource": "arn:aws:iam::*:user/${aws:username}"
        }
    ]
}

You can have a look at the manual page, if that's your thing.

Storing your current credentials in Credulous

$ export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=YOUR_AWS_ID
$ export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=XXXXXXXXXXX
$ credulous save # Will ask credulous to store these credentials
# saving credentials for user@account

Displaying a set of credentials from Credulous

$ credulous source -a account -u user
export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=YOUR_AWS_ID
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=XXXXXXXXXXX

Development

Build Status

Required tools:

Make sure you have GOPATH set in your environment

Download the dependencies

$ go get -u # -u will update existing dependencies

Install git2go (Optional if you already have it installed correctly in your environment)

$ go get github.com/libgit2/git2go
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/libgit2/git2go && rm -rf vendor/libgit2
$ git submodule update --init
$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/libgit2/git2go/vendor/libgit2/install/lib
$ make install
# Run dependency update again for credulous
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/realestate-com-au/credulous && go get -u

Install the binary in your $GOBIN

$ go install

Tests

First we make sure we have our dependencies

go get -t

Make sure goconvey is installed, else use

go get -t github.com/smartystreets/goconvey

Just go into this directory and either

goconvey
< Go to localhost:8080 in your browser >

Or just run

go test ./...
