flAWS - The End

Lesson learned

It is common to give people and entities read-only permissions such as the SecurityAudit policy. The ability to read your own and other's IAM policies can really help an attacker figure out what exists in your environment and look for weaknesses and mistakes.

Avoiding this mistake

Don't hand out any permissions liberally, even permissions that only let you read meta-data or know what your permissions are.

The End

Congratulations on completing the flAWS challenge!
