Tools and code used during my talk at RootedCON 2017

Automate or Die! How to survive to an attack in the cloud

March 3rd, 2017

##CloudFormation Template Template used for demos is based on my existing CFN template to automate deploy of Security Monkey. For additional steps after deployment please go to that repo documentation here here ###What does this CFN template?

  1. Creates a VPC with a public subnet for two instances and a private subnet for RDS (Pgsql used by SecurityMonkey)
  2. One instance is dedicated to Security Monkey the other has Tools and sample code on it like: Prowler, ThreatResponse Tools (see the template for details)
