  • Enumerate permissions to AWS services for current IAM role
  • Use poorly configured IAM role to create new AWS user
  • Extract local and remote AWS credentials from meta­data, .boto, etc.
  • Clone DB to access information stored in snapshot
  • Inject raw Celery task for pickle attack
If you want to test Nimbostratus, you can deploy an Amazon AWS infrastructure which has various vulnerabilities and weak configuration settings using Nimbostratus target which helps you setup a legal environment.
