The anatomy of a cloud native security attack
In this session, we will demonstrate that, while cloud native security attacks still follow the classic kill chain or MITRE ATT&CK framework, the artifacts and processes involved differ. For example, in cloud native development, many times public images are used and re-used over and over again, and accessed through public libraries (this is not a recommended security practice. . .but it is still done quite often). Attackers have figured out that they can access cloud native environments through this supply chain, masquerading as legitimate projects to get unwitting users to download malicious images. Those malicious images then carry out the attack – for example, hijacking cloud resources to run cryptomining operations. We will share examples like this of how we have seen attackers evade detection and carry out attacks in the wild. This session is for those who want to understand what real cloud native attacks look like, and how to avoid them.
