ASSESS ROOT ACCOUNT SECURITY

ASSESS ROOT ACCOUNT SECURITY2018-12-19T18:54:34-06:00

Project Description

Determine if MFA is enabled, access keys are disabled, and other recommended settings are in place.

Summary:

Securing the AWS root account(s) is the single most important baseline security control. Anyone logging into the root account has complete control over the cloud deployment and it can be difficult, if not impossible, to regain control. This Op analyzes root account security. It determines if MFA is enabled, access keys are disabled, and other recommended settings are in place. It will recommend hardware MFA if virtual is detected.

Supported Issue Types:

  • Root account without MFA detected
  • Root account with virtual MFA detected
  • Root account with access keys detected

Supported Actions:

  • Notify only. AWS does not allow API management of the root account.
