The multi cloud security group analyzer

Project description


Panoptes is an automatic security group analyzer focused on reducing the amount of toiling. Mainly focused on AWS, built to be extensible in the future and support the big cloud providers out there.


For lazy users

There is a Docker image tioxy/panoptes which uses the Dockerfile located in the root of the repository


  • Python >= 3.6
  • pip

For AWS usage

  • AWS CLI installed and configured with your IAM credentials (if you want more customization use Named Profiles)


Get the latest version of the package from your terminal with pip:

pip install panoptes --upgrade

Getting Started

If you want to see the available options:

panoptesctl aws analyze --help

Generate an AWS analysis with human readable output:

panoptesctl aws analyze --region <YOUR_REGION_CODE>

Generate an AWS analysis with an YML output and a Named Profile from AWS CLI:

panoptesctl aws analyze --region <YOUR_REGION_CODE> --profile <YOUR_PROFILE> --output yml

Check out AWS Regions to see available region codes



If you wish to whitelist IPs, not letting the analysis mark them as Unsafe, you can define a sample file with the desired IPs and CIDRs, like the following one:


And then run the analysis with the parameter --whitelist:

panoptesctl aws analyze --region <YOUR_REGION_CODE> --output yml --whitelist /PATH/TO/your_whitelist.txt


Panoptes generates automatically a list of IPs which it does not consider harmful from the desired cloud provider.

AWS autogenerated

  • VPC ranges
  • Subnet ranges
  • Private IPs from EC2 VPC Instances
  • Public IPs from EC2 VPC Instances
  • Elastic IPs


The Automatic AWS Whitelist feature can't whitelist public and private IP's from EC2 Classic, so make sure that those instances have an Elastic IP attached and their security groups are pointing to the new Elastic IP attached instead of the default EC2 Classic ones.
