Both defenders and attackers have a keen interest in understanding the attack surface for an organization — defenders must understand what is exposed so they can prioritize what to maintain and monitor — attackers must understand what is reachable so they can decide which services are available to compromise.
At Randori, our automated attack platform emulates a realistic adversary. Real adversaries will often take advantage of targets of opportunity discovered on a network, even if those targets are not directly related to an objective.
If you're in enterprise security, chances are you're familiar with F5 BIG-IP and CVE-2020-5902. Used by 45% of Randori customers and thousands of organizations, it's a very common network appliance family and is famous for having ruined the July 4th plans of many security engineers and network administrators.
If you were one of the many folks this weekend trying to figure out if you had a F5 BIP, if so how many, if the administration interface was exposed to the internet, if you knew where the logs were going and if you had enough visibility to know if it was being actively exploited you got pulled into a scramble and frankly… You f*cke up a long time ago.
At Randori, one way our automated attack platform operates is by bridging docker containers into remote network environments. The actual operation of this system is outside the scope of this article, but in short, a series of network tunnels within network tunnels provides us with a container with network traffic fully (and only) emerging into a remote network.
