tests for checking that third party services the Firefox Operations Security or foxsec team uses are configured correctly

Project description

Frost

PyPI version Documentation

frost snowman logo

HTTP clients and a wrapper around pytest tests to verify that third party services are configured correctly. For example:

  • Are our AWS DB snapshots publicly accessible?
  • Are there dangling DNS entries in Route53?

Running

To fetch RDS resources from the cache or AWS API and check that backups are enabled for DB instances for the configured aws profile named default in the us-west-2 region

  1. find the test file path:
$ frost list | grep rds
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_instance_backup_enabled.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_snapshot_encrypted.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_instance_is_postgres_with_invalid_certificate.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_instance_encrypted.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_security_group_does_not_grant_public_access.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_instance_not_publicly_accessible_by_vpc_sg.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_instance_minor_version_updates_enabled.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_instance_is_multiaz.py
./aws/rds/test_rds_db_snapshot_not_publicly_accessible.py

Note: packaged frost tests are relative to the frost install

  1. run the test:
frost test aws/rds/test_rds_db_instance_backup_enabled.py --aws-profiles default

Frost adds the options:

  • --aws-profiles for selecting one or more AWS profiles to fetch resources for or the AWS default profile / AWS_PROFILE environment variable
  • --aws-regions for selecting one or more AWS regions to test as a CSV e.g. us-east-1,us-west-2. defaults to all regions
  • --gcp-project-id for selecting the GCP project to test. Required for GCP tests
  • --offline a flag to tell HTTP clients to not make requests and return empty params
  • --config path to test custom config file

and produces output showing calls to the AWS API and failing for a DB instance with backups disabled:

Setting up GCP tests

Enabling required API's for your project
gcloud [--project <project name>] services enable bigquery-json.googleapis.com
gcloud [--project <project name>] services enable cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com
gcloud [--project <project name>] services enable compute.googleapis.com
gcloud [--project <project name>] services enable sqladmin.googleapis.com

Setting up GSuite tests

Make sure to have an OAuth2 app created and have the client_secret.json file in ~/.credentials and then run:

make setup_gsuite

Caching

The AWS client will use AWS API JSON responses when available and save them using AWS profile, region, service name, service method, botocore args and kwargs in the cache key to filenames with the format .cache/v/pytest_aws:<aws profile>:<aws region>:<aws service>:<service method>:<args>:<kwargs>.json e.g.

head .cache/v/pytest_aws:cloudservices-aws-stage:us-west-2:rds:describe_db_instances::.json
{
    "DBInstances": [
        {
            "AllocatedStorage": 5,
            "AutoMinorVersionUpgrade": true,
            "AvailabilityZone": "us-west-2c",
            "BackupRetentionPeriod": 1,
            "CACertificateIdentifier": "rds-ca-2015",
            "CopyTagsToSnapshot": false,
            "DBInstanceArn": "arn:aws:rds:us-west-2:123456678901:db:test-db",

These files can be removed individually or all at once with the pytest --cache-clear option. The cache can be disabled entirely with the pytest -p no:cacheprovider.

Custom Test Config

frost adds a --config cli option for passing in a custom config file specific to tests within frost.

The example config in repo (config.yaml.example):

Test Exemptions

frost custom config format adds support for marking test and test resource IDs as expected failures.

The keys for each exemption rule is:

  • test_name - Name of the test
  • test_param_id - test ID (usually an AWS resource ID) (prefix with * to turn into a regex matcher)
  • expiration_day - exception expiration day (as YYYY-MM-DD)
  • reason - exception reason

The config looks like:

...
exemptions:
  - test_name: test_ec2_instance_has_required_tags
    test_param_id: i-0123456789f014c162
    expiration_day: 2019-01-01
    reason: ec2 instance has no owner
  - test_name: test_ec2_security_group_opens_specific_ports_to_all
    test_param_id: '*HoneyPot'
    expiration_day: 2020-01-01
    reason: purposefully insecure security group
...

Enabling regex for test ID

You can prefix the test ID with a * to enable regex matching for the test ID. The * prefix will be stripped off, and the rest will be used as a regex.

For example:

  • *foobar becomes foobar
  • *foo\w+ becomes foo\w+

For more information on Python's regex syntax see: Regular Expression HOWTO.

Note: All regex rules are applied first. As well, the ordering of both regex and non-regex rules is top to bottom and the first one wins.

When a json report is generated, the exemptions will show up in the json metadata as serialized markers:

python -m json.tool report.json | grep -C 20 xfail
...
                        "markers": {
                            "ec2": {
                                "name": "ec2",
                                "args": [],
                                "kwargs": {}
                            },
                            "parametrize": {
                                "name": "parametrize",
                                "args": [
                                    "...skipped..."
                                ],
                                "kwargs": [
                                    "...skipped..."
                                ]
                            },
                            "xfail": {
                                "name": "xfail",
                                "args": [],
                                "kwargs": {
                                    "reason": "ec2 instance has no owner",
                                    "strict": true,
                                    "expiration": "2019-01-01"
                                }
                            }
                        },
...

Test Severity

frost custom config format adds support for marking the severity of a certain test. A severity can be INFO, WARN, or ERROR.

These do not modify pytest results (pass, fail, xfail, skip, etc.).

The config looks like:

...
severities:
  - test_name: test_ec2_instance_has_required_tags
    severity: INFO
  - test_name: '*'
    severity: ERROR
...

And results in a severity and severity marker being included in the json metadata:

frost test -s --aws-profiles stage --aws-require-tags Name Type App Stack -k test_ec2_instance_has_required_tags --config config.yaml.example --json=report.json
...
python -m json.tool report.json
{
    "report": {
        "environment": {
            "Python": "3.6.2",
            "Platform": "Darwin-15.6.0-x86_64-i386-64bit"
        },
        "tests": [
            {
...
                "metadata": [
                    {
...
                    "markers": {
...
                            "severity": {
                                "name": "severity",
                                "args": [
                                    "INFO"
                                ],
                                "kwargs": {}
                            }
                        },
...
                        "severity": "INFO",
                        "unparametrized_name": "test_ec2_instance_has_required_tags"
                    }
...

AWS Config

frost has a suite of AWS tests. This section of the custom config includes configuration options specific to these tests.

The config looks like:

...
aws:
  # Relative time delta for test_iam_user_is_inactive. no_activity_since will be used as the failure marker,
  # so in this example any user that hasn't had any activity for a year will be marked as a "failure". created_after
  # is used as a grace period, so in this case any user that was created within the last week will be automatically
  # pass this test.
  user_is_inactive:
    no_activity_since:
      years: 1
      months: 0
    created_after:
      weeks: 1
  # Required tags used within the test_ec2_instance_has_required_tags test
  required_tags:

    - Env
  # Allowed ports for the test_ec2_security_group_opens_specific_ports_to_all

  # Allowed ports for the test_ec2_security_group_opens_specific_ports_to_all
  # test for specific instances. In this example, we are allowing ports 22
  # and 2222 for all security groups that include the word 'bastion' in them.
  allowed_ports:
    - test_param_id: '*bastion'
      ports:
        - 22
        - 2222
...

GSuite Config

frost has a suite of GSuite tests. This section of the custom config includes configuration options specific to these tests.

Make sure to setup GSuite before running GSuite tests

The config looks like:

gsuite:
  # The specific GSuite domain to test.
  domain: 'example.com'
  # Relative time delta for test_admin_user_is_inactive. no_activity_since will be used as the failure marker,
  # so in this example any user that hasn't had any activity for a year will be marked as a "failure".
  user_is_inactive:
    no_activity_since:
      years: 1
      months: 0

Test Accuracy

There are two important things to note about frost tests that may be different from your expectations.

First, the focus is on "actionable results". This plays out as an attempt to reduce false positives by trying to filter out unused resources. An example of this can be seen by looking at any of the security group tests, where we are skipping any security groups that are not attached to a resource.

Second, there are some tests that make naive assumptions instead of trying to capture the complexities of the system. The current best example of this is all IAM tests that relate to "admin" users. How we are determining what an user or role is an admin is based simply off substring matching on the policies attached. This obviously has a high chance of false negatives.

Development

Goals

  1. replace one-off scripts for each check
  2. share checks with other organizations
  3. consolidate bugs in one place (i.e. one thing to update)
  4. in pytest use a known existing framework for writing checks
  5. be vendor agnostic e.g. support checks across cloud providers or in hybrid environments or competing services
  6. cache and share responses to reduce third party API usage (i.e. lots of tests check AWS security groups so fetch them once)
  7. provide a way to run a single test or subset of tests
  8. focus on actionable results (see test accuracy for more information)

Non-Goals

  1. Invent a new DSL for writing expectations (use pytest conventions)
  2. Verify how third party services or their client libraries work (e.g. don't answer "Does GET / on the CRUD1 API return 400 when query param q is $bad_value?")

Design

Currently this is a monolithic pytest package, but should eventually be extracted into a pytest plugin and with separate dependent pytest plugins for each service.

API responses should fit on disk and in memory (i.e. don't use this for log processing or checking binaries for malware), and be safe to cache for minutes, hours, or days (i.e. probably don't use this for monitoring a streaming API) (NB: bug for specifying data freshness).

Additionally we want:

  • data fetching functions in a resources.py
  • data checking and test helpers in a helpers.py
  • prefix test files with test_
  • doctests for non test files (e.g. helpers.py, resources.py, client.py)
    • tests that depend on external IO or the runtime environment (env vars, file system, HTTP) to use the prefix meta_test_ (and probably mock or pytest.monkeypatch)
      • JSON fixtures for anonymized cached http call in example_cache/v/
  • tests to have pytest markers for any services they depend on for data
  • HTTP clients should be read only and use read only credentials
  • running a test should not modify services

Adding an example test

Let's write a test to check that http://httpbin.org/ip returns an AWS IP:

  1. create a file httpbin/test_httpbin_ip.py with the contents:
import itertools
import ipaddress
import pytest
import json
import urllib.request


def get_httpbin_ips():
    # IPs we always want to test
    ips = [
        '127.0.0.1',
        '13.58.0.0',
    ]

    req = urllib.request.Request('http://httpbin.org/ip')

    with urllib.request.urlopen(req) as response:
        body = response.read().decode('utf-8')
        ips.append(json.loads(body).get('origin', None))

    return ips


def get_aws_ips():
    req = urllib.request.Request('https://ip-ranges.amazonaws.com/ip-ranges.json')

    with urllib.request.urlopen(req) as response:
        body = response.read().decode('utf-8')
        return json.loads(body)['prefixes']


@pytest.mark.httpbin

Notes:

  • we add two data fetching functions that return lists that we can zip into tuples for the pytest parametrize decorator
  • we add markers for the services we're fetching data from
  1. Running frost test with the test file explicitly included we see that one of the IPs is an AWS IP:

Note: marking tests as expected failures with @pytest.mark.xfail can hide data fetching errors

To improve this we could:

  1. Add parametrize ids so it's clearer which parametrize caused test failures
  2. Add directions about why it's an issue and how to fix it or what the associated risks are

As we add more tests we can:

  1. Move the JSON fetching functions to <service name>/resources.py files and import them into the test
  2. Move the fetching logic to a shared library <service name>/client.py and save to the pytest cache
  3. Add a <service name>/conftest.py and register the service's marks in a pytest_configure to resolve some warnings
