Stages of Kubernetes penetration test

Pretest: Discovery phase (Pre-Attack phase)
  • Discovery of the attack surface
  • Confirmation of scope
  • High-level threat modeling
  • Escalation process agreement
  • Communication requirements agreement
  • Prepare technical solutions
  • Compliance discovery
Testing: Ethical Attack phase (Implementation, Operational phase)
  • Actual attack simulation
  • DAST/SAST examining
  • Vulnerability identification
  • Violate application and data integrity
  • Exploitation
  • Analyze the application using cryptography
  • Regular security scan upon agreement
  • Storing artifacts
Reporting: Analyzing phase (Identifying and Documenting Proofs of Vulnerability)
  • Examining to locate anomalies and issues
  • Gathering configuration settings and metadata
  • Analyzing collected data to identify any gaps
  • Producing screenshots, videos, or detailed descriptions 
  • Security best practices (OWASP, CIS, SANS, etc.) 
  • Proposed remediation plans for issues
Reviewing: Represent State/Planning phase
  • Optional Wash-up call
  • Provide results/reports to the client
  • Consulting regarding security findings
  • Post-test support based on recommendations
  • Action plan for the next period
  • Possibility to integrate security services into any CI/CD pipeline/process
  • Arrange re-testing if required

FAQ for those who have some issues to clarify

If you have any other issues to solve, contact us directly.

Is Kubernetes a testing tool?

Though Kubernetes is mainly used as a container orchestration tool, it is a multi-tool that can be used in different ways for testing. You can set up different environments and pack your app in various container combinations to test the speed and other indicators of your program efficiency. If you’re asking in the context of the pentesting Kubernetes can offer, then you should probably get a direct consultation from our specialists.

How is Kubernetes deployment tested?

There are a lot of tools created for testing of k8s deployment. For example, you can conduct the test of your environment running kubectl to check the rollout statuses or to run the CI process. Also, you can use other specialized tools for deployment check. The penetration testing Kubernetes allows users to check the security issues of their environment and the k8s project.

Where can I test Kubernetes?

You can test your k8s environment both locally and cloud-based. If you’re asking about companies that can help you with Kubernetes penetration test, then you can contact us for clarification of details. We’ll analyze your project and send you an offer with an action plan for testing your project.

How do you run tests in Kubernetes?

Generally, we run tests in any k8s projects using a dedicated Test Environment. With this approach, we cannot cause any damage to your existing infrastructure and test the fixes of the revealed problems right away before taking it to the production k8s environment.

How do you test Kubernetes locally?

Typically, we copy the production environment to the local storage and run all the tests we need. After completing the tests, we apply the changes in the test environment, and if everything goes smoothly, we take everything back to the production k8s cluster.
