Container Vulnerability Assessment Simplified

Why Is Container Vulnerability Assessment Worth Your time?

Container vulnerability assessment is an important part of any software development lifecycle. It helps to ensure that the software you produce is secure, and that you are meeting industry standards for security. Many organisations choose to use containers because they’re easier to manage than traditional virtual machines. However, this convenience comes with a cost: container security is complicated and requires specialised expertise. Here are some of the most common vulnerabilities Containers have:

Benefits of Container Security Testing

Containers are a big part of modern IT, but they are also vulnerable to attacks. That’s why Neumetric offers our Containers Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing Services. With these services, we’ll check your containers for vulnerabilities and help you fix them so you can keep your data safe.  

We’ll also identify any gaps in your container security and suggest solutions based on industry best practices. And if we find that there are no gaps—which is rare!—we’ll still provide recommendations for how to improve security even more. Our Container Security Testing includes the following Checklist:

Frequently Asked Questions

If Solutions and Organisations are left un-protected or under-protected, it allows for hackers to easily access sensitive information without being observed and re-use the stolen data for wrong-doing or purposes for which the User has not given permission to.
A serious attack could result into a denial of delivery of Service, ransom demands or complete loss of Data. This will result into loss of Credibility, damage claims by Clients, loss of future Business

Technical Security and General Security.
Technical Security pertains to protection of the Platform/Product/Solution/Servers from attacks.
General Security pertains to implementing Organisation wide processes to prevent attacks from being successful

Vulnerability Assessment or VAPT is a technical review of the Code for any bugs & loopholes that may allow unauthorized access or entry to the System.
While writing code developers may not be aware of the security loopholes in the written code.
Vulnerability Assessment is designed to identify such loopholes so that it can be fixed permanently, this ensures that hackers are unable to access the code for malicious purposes.

Approximately 1.25 months excluding remediation activity.

Multiple tools are used during VAPT. Burp Suite & OWASP ZAP are the most commonly used, but depending on need & necessity, we use a host of tools & systems available in the Kali Linux OS. 
For Mobile Apps we frequently use Santoku OS. 
For APIs we primarily use Postman.

We do not remediate but do provide explanation on how to remediate the Vulnerabilities. Fixing them is your responsibility.

A container vulnerability is a security flaw that can be exploited in the software that runs on a container. Containers are designed to be secure, but due to their open source nature and frequent updates, they are vulnerable to being exploited. Some of the most common container vulnerabilities include:

  • Isolation Flaws
  • Untrusted Containers
  • Insecure Configuration of Components
  • Broken Access Control
  • Insufficient Authorization
  • Host-side Vulnerabilities
  • Lack of Runtime Security Monitoring
  • Vulnerable Container Images
  • Kernel-level Vulnerabilities
  • Exposed and Compromised Secrets
  • Insecure Inter-Container Communication
  • Inadequate Container Encapsulation

In short, if you find yourself with a vulnerable container, there are a few things you can do. First, make sure the container has been updated. If it’s not, update it immediately. Then check your dependencies and make sure they’re up to date as well.

If that doesn’t work, you may have to rebuild your image from scratch using a new base image (one that is known to be secure). This is time consuming but could be necessary if there are too many vulnerabilities in your current image.

Finally, if none of these options work for you, then you may need to consider switching from Docker or another container system altogether.

The purpose of container vulnerability scanning is to identify and remediate vulnerabilities in containers. This is important because it allows Organizations to take a proactive approach to security by identifying and patching vulnerabilities before they are exploited by attackers. It also helps ensure that containers are used in a manner that is consistent with best practices.

One challenge is the sheer number of containers an Organisation has to scan. Because they’re so lightweight and portable, containers are rapidly becoming the standard way to manage software packages in production environments. This means that there are potentially hundreds or thousands of them running at any given time, which makes it difficult for vulnerability scans to keep up with them all.

Another challenge is that many container environments are made up of several different types of containers, each with their own unique vulnerabilities and configuration options. This makes it harder for vulnerability scanners to understand how each container works as well as what vulnerabilities it might have without actually interacting with it first (which would expose sensitive data).

Finally, because containers are portable across platforms, Organisations need a way to make sure their vulnerability scanning tools work on every platform their employees use—whether that’s Windows or Linux or MacOS—so that they can find vulnerabilities before hackers do!
