Amazon Inspector Sandbox

Use this sandbox to explore the Amazon Inspector service. There is no particular scenario or end goal, but we recommend clicking around the service to see what features it offers, and then updating the pre-created Lambda function to see how Inspector detects vulnerable code issues. You will need to enable Inspector in the account, then, in the Inspector Dashboard, go to “Account Management” -> “Activate” -> Check “AWS Lambda Standard scanning + AWS Lambda Code scanning” -> “Submit” for Inspector to scan the function’s code and not just dependencies. Then, go to the Lambda dashboard and edit the existing Lambda function code. You can try adding various types of vulnerabilities to this function, but a great starting point is to hardcode fake access keys. Note: The function has no access to any other AWS service by design.

What's a Hands-On Lab?

Sandboxes are Hands-On Labs just like our other labs, but they don’t have a specific scenario in mind. They give you the opportunity to practice using an AWS service free of charge and without any cleanup.

Practical Learning. Dive in and learn cloud security at your own pace with real AWS resources and real-world scenarios

1-Click Deployments. AWS lab environments at the click of a button. Skip the hassle of creating practice accounts and dive straight into using real resources

Risk Free. Keep vulnerable training environments far away from your corporate resources.

Never worry about costs. No surprise bills when you forget to turn off or delete resources
