Is your Serverless Application Secure?

Submitted Apr 21, 2019

Serverless is one of the rapidly growing technology in this cloud world. This gives a lot of advantages for the developers & adapters for while managing our applications & code. This also gives a lot of abstractions including in security space. This makes the developers think that their application is secure from all the threats & vulnerabilities.

But as like other security conceptions, Serverless also has lot of misconceptions like we do not need to much worry about security & it will be managed by the providers. But the reality is not the same.

May be the attack surface is lesser when compared to the other types of applications. But still we have a lot space to take care in the serverless security. Let’s look into why security in serverless is important & how to ensure our serverless applications secure.


  1. What is Serverless Applications
  2. Why Security is key in Serverless
  3. Targets in Serverless Applications
  4. Common attack samples with NodeJS applications
    a. Securing Application Code
    b. Securing Dependencies
    c. Configuration
  5. What changes with Serverless
    a. Rate limiting
    b. Secrets in code
    c. Firewalls

Secure web application - Hands on workshop

In this workshop we will be using the Damn Vulnerable NodeJS Application(DVNA) to demonstrate the OWASP top ten vulnerabilities. Initially participants will try to exploit, then understand and fix the vulnerability. We will use Kali linux to demostrate how to scan and find some of the vulnerabilities. If time permits we will try to explain, how to build secure containerized application and settin… more
