How k9 Security works
k9 Security shows your engineers the access each IAM user and role has to critical AWS services and data. Now you can test your security policies. Then your engineers can use k9’s infrastructure code libraries to right-size access and secure data quickly.
- Review access reports using the k9 Security Katas and identify issues
- Remediate access issues by cleaning up principals and using the k9 secure policy generators
Customers find critical issues in their production accounts:
Unexpected IAM admins
Unused IAM Principals
Access gaps to critical data and keys
Then they secure IAM.
Simple Daily Reporting
k9 analyzes access granted by your AWS security policies nightly, then publishes an actionable report to your own S3 bucket.
Pivot, filter, slice, and dice with tools and data you already use.
Use the Excel format (sample) for quick, interactive analysis. Load the CSV into your SIEM (Splunk, Datadog) for monitoring.
Use the certified 3rd party IAM access report to audit:
✅ IAM administrators
✅ Unused IAM users and roles
✅ Access to critical data sources, keys, and IAM roles
✅ IAM user passwords and API access keys
✅ Access to AWS service APIs
Supported Services: IAM, STS, KMS, S3, RDS, DynamoDB, Redshift, and more (1375+ AWS API Actions)
Who has access to what data? Really. (sample)
k9 tells you exactly what AWS permissions allow today and every day.
k9 determines who has access with the AWS IAM simulation APIs. k9 summarizes that into actionable reports (details). Analysis includes Service Control, IAM, and Resource policies.
This is not a static analysis of IAM policy or summary of yesterday's CloudTrail events. (k9 reports what IAM users and roles could do with AWS APIs and data.)
Now you can "unit test" all of your AWS security policies, even in production.
Secure Policy Automation
Secure your data with security policies generated by k9's usable infrastructure automation libraries. Built for continuous delivery. Specify your intended access in simple language and let k9 generate a least privilege security policy. See k9 Security's Terraform & CDK libraries on GitHub.
✅ Least privilege access policy
✅ Code review
