Prowler: AWS CIS Benchmark Tool

Table of Contents

Description

Prowler is a command line tool for AWS Security Best Practices Assessment, Auditing, Hardening and Forensics Readiness Tool.

It follows guidelines of the CIS Amazon Web Services Foundations Benchmark (49 checks) and has 40 additional checks including related to GDPR and HIPAA.

Read more about CIS Amazon Web Services Foundations Benchmark v1.2.0 - 05-23-2018

Features

It covers hardening and security best practices for all AWS regions related to the next groups:

  • Identity and Access Management (22 checks) [group1]
  • Logging (9 checks) [group2]
  • Monitoring (14 checks) [group3]
  • Networking (4 checks) [group4]
  • CIS Level 1 [cislevel1]
  • CIS Level 2 [cislevel2]
  • Extras (39 checks) see Extras section [extras]
  • Forensics related group of checks [forensics-ready]
  • GDPR [gdpr] Read more here
  • HIPPA [hippa] Read more here

For a comprehensive list and resolution look at the guide on the link above.

With Prowler you can:

  • get a colorful or monochrome report
  • a CSV format report for diff
  • run specific checks without having to run the entire report
  • check multiple AWS accounts in parallel

Requirements and Installation

This script has been written in bash using AWS-CLI and it works in Linux and OSX.

  • Make sure your AWS-CLI is installed on your workstation, with Python pip already installed:

    pip install awscli

    Or install it using "brew", "apt", "yum" or manually from https://aws.amazon.com/cli/

  • Previous steps, from your workstation:

    git clone https://github.com/Alfresco/prowler
    cd prowler
  • Make sure you have properly configured your AWS-CLI with a valid Access Key and Region:

    aws configure
  • Make sure your Secret and Access Keys are associated to a user with proper permissions to do all checks. To make sure add SecurityAuditor default policy to your user. Policy ARN is

    arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/SecurityAudit

    In some cases you may need more list or get permissions in some services, look at the Troubleshooting section for a more comprehensive policy if you find issues with the default SecurityAudit policy.

Usage

  1. Run the prowler command without options (it will use your environment variable credentials if they exist or will default to using the ~/.aws/credentials file and run checks over all regions when needed. The default region is us-east-1):

    ./prowler

    Use -l to list all available checks and group of checks (sections)

  2. For custom AWS-CLI profile and region, use the following: (it will use your custom profile and run checks over all regions when needed):

    ./prowler -p custom-profile -r us-east-1
  3. For a single check use option -c:

    ./prowler -c check310

    or for custom profile and region:

    ./prowler -p custom-profile -r us-east-1 -c check11

    or for a group of checks use group name:

    ./prowler -g group1 # for iam related checks

    Valid check numbers are based on the AWS CIS Benchmark guide, so 1.1 is check11 and 3.10 is check310

  4. If you want to save your report for later analysis:

    ./prowler -M mono > prowler-report.txt

    or if you want a coloured HTML report do:

    pip install ansi2html
    ./prowler | ansi2html -la > report.html

    or if you want a pipe-delimited report file, do:

    ./prowler -M csv > output.psv

    or json formatted output using jq, do:

    ./prowler -M json > prowler-output.json

    or save your report in a S3 bucket:

    ./prowler -M mono | aws s3 cp - s3://bucket-name/prowler-report.txt
  5. To perform an assessment based on CIS Profile Definitions you can use level1 or level2 with -c flag, more information about this here, page 8:

    ./prowler -c level1
  6. If you want to run Prowler to check multiple AWS accounts in parallel (runs up to 4 simultaneously -P 4):

    grep -E '^\[([0-9A-Aa-z_-]+)\]'  ~/.aws/credentials | tr -d '][' | shuf |  \
    xargs -n 1 -L 1 -I @ -r -P 4 ./prowler -p @ -M csv  2> /dev/null  >> all-accounts.csv
  7. For help use:

    ./prowler -h
    
    USAGE:
        prowler [ -p <profile> -r <region>  -h ]
    
    Options:
        -p <profile>        specify your AWS profile to use (i.e.: default)
        -r <region>         specify an AWS region to direct API requests to
                                (i.e.: us-east-1), all regions are checked anyway if the check requires it
        -c <check_id>       specify a check id, to see all available checks use -l option
                                (i.e.: check11 for check 1.1 or extra71 for extra check 71)
        -g <group_id>       specify a group of checks by id, to see all available group of checks use -L
                                (i.e.: check3 for entire section 3, level1 for CIS Level 1 Profile Definitions or forensics-ready)
        -f <filterregion>   specify an AWS region to run checks against
                                (i.e.: us-west-1)
        -m <maxitems>       specify the maximum number of items to return for long-running requests (default: 100)
        -M <mode>           output mode: text (default), mono, json, csv (separator is ,; data is on stdout; progress on stderr)
        -k                  keep the credential report
        -n                  show check numbers to sort easier
                                (i.e.: 1.01 instead of 1.1)
        -l                  list all available checks only (does not perform any check)
        -L                  list all groups (does not perform any check)
        -e                  exclude group extras
        -b                  do not print Prowler banner
        -h                  this help

Troubleshooting

STS expired token

If you are using an STS token for AWS-CLI and your session is expired you probably get this error:

A client error (ExpiredToken) occurred when calling the GenerateCredentialReport operation: The security token included in the request is expired

To fix it, please renew your token by authenticating again to the AWS API.

Custom IAM Policy

Instead of using default policy SecurityAudit for the account you use for checks you may need to create a custom policy with a few more permissions (get and list, not change!) here you go a good example for a "ProwlerPolicyReadOnly":

}

Incremental IAM Policy

Alternatively, here is a policy which defines the permissions which are NOT present in the AWS Managed SecurityAudit policy. Attach both this policy and the AWS Managed SecurityAudit policy to the group and you're good to go.

{
  "Version": "2012-10-17",
  "Statement": [
    {
      "Action": [
        "support:DescribeTrustedAdvisorChecks"
      ],
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Resource": "*"
    }
  ]
}

Bootstrap Script

Quick bash script to set up a "prowler" IAM user and "SecurityAudit" group with the required permissions. To run the script below, you need user with administrative permissions; set the AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE to use that account.

export AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE=default
export ACCOUNT_ID=$(aws sts get-caller-identity --query 'Account' | tr -d '"')
aws iam create-group --group-name SecurityAudit
aws iam create-policy --policy-name ProwlerAuditAdditions --policy-document file://$(pwd)/iam/prowler-policy-additions.json
aws iam attach-group-policy --group-name SecurityAudit --policy-arn arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/SecurityAudit
aws iam attach-group-policy --group-name SecurityAudit --policy-arn arn:aws:iam::${ACCOUNT_ID}:policy/ProwlerAuditAdditions
aws iam create-user --user-name prowler
aws iam add-user-to-group --user-name prowler --group-name SecurityAudit
aws iam create-access-key --user-name prowler
unset ACCOUNT_ID AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE

The aws iam create-access-key command will output the secret access key and the key id; keep these somewhere safe, and add them to ~/.aws/credentials with an appropriate profile name to use them with prowler. This is the only time they secret key will be shown. If you loose it, you will need to generate a replacement.

Extras

We are adding additional checks to improve the information gather from each account, these checks are out of the scope of the CIS benchmark for AWS but we consider them very helpful to get to know each AWS account set up and find issues on it.

Note: Some of these checks for publicly facing resources may not actually be fully public due to other layered controls like S3 Bucket Policies, Security Groups or Network ACLs.

At this moment we have 37 extra checks:

  • 7.1 (extra71) Ensure users with AdministratorAccess policy have MFA tokens enabled (Not Scored) (Not part of CIS benchmark)
  • 7.2 (extra72) Ensure there are no EBS Snapshots set as Public (Not Scored) (Not part of CIS benchmark)

  1. Follow structure in file checks/check_sample
  2. Name your check with a number part of an existing group or a new one
  3. Save changes and run it as ./prowler -c extraNN
  4. Send me a pull request! :)

Add Custom Groups

  1. Follow structure in file groups/groupN_sample
  2. Name your group with a non existing number
  3. Save changes and run it as ./prowler -g extraNN
  4. Send me a pull request! :)
  • You can also create a group with only the checks that you want to perform in your company, for instance a group named group9_mycompany with only the list of checks that you care or your particular compliance applies.
