πŸ“ Abstract:

AWS has taken over the responsibilities of patching the OS and securing the underlying physical infrastructure that runs your serverless application, so what’s left for you to secure? Quite a bit it turns out. This talk introduces the audience to the many threats that we face in our serverless architecture - OWASP top 10 attacks, DoS, app dependencies. We will look at areas where serverless has improved security, but also areas where it has introduced new forms of vulnerabilities. We will also look at leading practices for securing your serverless architecture, such as per-function IAM policies, account-level isolations, encryption at rest and in-flight, as well as how to prevent and recover from compromised AWS credentials.
