Deep Dive into Clouded Waters

An overview in Digital Ocean's Pentest and Security

About the Book

Digital Ocean has been around for some time and has given its users a cheap, but quite reliable Cloud Platform. That doesn't mean it's fully secured. Or that admins can set it up securely.

Especially considering that most Infrastructure Based Attacks come from misconfigurations.

In this book, we'll look at what services Digital Ocean offers, how to abuse them as attack vectors and how to defend against them.

Get ready to dive deep into dangerous unexplored waters full of mystery.
