Defending IaaS with ATT&CK

Project Summary

Published : Nov 16, 2022

Defending IaaS with ATT&CK developed an ATT&CK matrix that enables users to easily understand and work with the techniques applicable to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environments, regardless of whether the attacks target the cloud management layer, the container technology, or the hosted infrastructure. The project also developed documentation and tools to simplify creating overlays for other domains like Industrial Control Systems (ICS) or Operational Technology (OT).

Problem

Organizations using IaaS need to understand the techniques adversaries can use against them regardless of whether they occur at the cloud management layer, the container technology, or the hosted infrastructure itself (primarily, Linux servers).

SOLUTION

Defending IaaS with ATT&CK provides a straightforward approach to understanding and working with the techniques applicable to IaaS across Cloud, Containers, and Linux.

IMPACT

Organizations that use IaaS can easily understand and defend against the full set of techniques that might be used against that environment.
