How Access Management Protects Today’s No-Perimeter Network | #SDN #Cloud #Security

The rule of thumb for network security today is that there is no perimeter anymore

How Access Management Protects Today's No-Perimeter Network

The rule of thumb for network security today is that there is no perimeter anymore. An outsider can easily become an insider once perimeter security is breached. Every day, attackers find new ways to breach enterprise perimeter security through ransomware, malware or phishing through social engineering.

This is not to suggest that all is lost. Rather, organizations can defeat cybercriminals, in part, by better managing what has already been put in place. As an example of what can go wrong if that doesn't happen, consider the following story.

On the way in to his office one day, Chris, the CSO of Big Deal Company, runs into Kate from cryptography, who comments that their IT admin, Tim, has been hard at work since about 5:00 a.m. This seems odd, since Tim is not known to be a morning person. Kate says Tim requested access to the company's latest build system, where they keep the code to a top-secret product that is about to launch. He also requested access to HR records and the customer payment information systems for maintenance purposes. His access credentials and keys were older, she says, but they still checked out, so she let him continue.

In the hallway, Chris meets up with Don, who works in Data Loss Prevention. He tells Chris that he's surprised how hard Tim has been working this morning, transferring gigabytes of data around the network. Don figures there must be a major update in the works, and Chris agrees that's why Tim must have come in so early. Chris is impressed with Tim's initiative to work off-hours, and he asks what kind of data Tim has been transferring.

Don tells him that there's just no way to know. After all, everything is encrypted for security reasons, so Data Loss Prevention can't see what kind of data is moved in and out of the system. However, he tells Chris that Kate from cryptography said his credentials checked out, so not to worry. Tim is a trustworthy employee.

It all seems to make sense, but Chris feels a vague sense of unease. So, he stops by Jack's office. Jack is in charge of Privileged Access Management, and Chris asks if he's interacted with Tim today. Jack says that, in fact, Tim worked around him by using an SSH Key pair. Chris comments that this seems like a breach of protocol, but Jack assures him that this type of thing happens all the time. Jack mumbles something about how he's never bothered to check for new SSH keys after vaulting all the SSH keys on his first day of work. He supposes he could continuously discover SSH keys, but that seems like a lot of work...

This does nothing to assuage the unease. Chris arrives at his office, where he starts his computer. His login fails; he realizes he's forgotten his password again. As if on cue, his phone rings. It's Tim, who is sniffling and coughing. He apologizes for calling so late in the work day, but-

Chris tells him he's not late; he's called just in time to provide password help. Tim tells him he can help but recommends that, going forward, he use the same password for everything; that way, he'll never forget it. In fact, Tim has written his password on his computer screen at work so anyone can use his account to reset forgotten passwords when he is not in the office.

"Not in the office?" Chris's heart begins to race. Tim says no, he'll be out sick today. "If you're not here, then who is accessing all of our critical systems and moving massive amounts of encrypted data out of the network?"

Now it's Tim's heart that is racing. He is stunned that someone could have stolen the backdoor SSH key that bypasses PAM, which he keeps on his work computer - right next to his password.

What Chris Should Have Known
The saddest part about this story is that it didn't have to happen - and yet it has, in organizations across all industries and geographies. The reality is that a determined attacker can and will get in, but the other reality is that the security mechanisms you have in place to mitigate the damage will make the most difference.

Organizations can better defend their networks by keeping these points in mind:

  • Criminals can breach the network in many ways, but the best way to spread the attack is through the theft of credentials like SSH keys.
  • Once a malicious actor has gained access to your network, an attacker can impersonate your employees and hide their activity with encryption. All internal and external traffic needs to be decrypted and inspected because encrypted traffic renders DLP and firewalls useless.
  • It is critical to continuously monitor network environments for new SSH key deployments. Not doing so can render any PAM system useless.
  • The most effective way to prevent credential theft is to use short-lived credentials, eliminating the need for passwords or burdensome and intrusive PAM systems.

Tim is not the bad guy in this story - or at least, not the only bad guy. The organization that normalizes Tim's slack and unsafe behavior is bound to run into trouble. But it doesn't have to be this way. Use the points above to make sure your organization is managing privileged access consistently and securely. That way, outsiders will have a much harder time wreaking havoc once they get into your network.

CloudExpo | DXWorldEXPO have announced the conference tracks for Cloud Expo 2018, introducing DXWorldEXPO.

DXWordEXPO, colocated with Cloud Expo will be held June 5-7, 2018, at the Javits Center in New York City, and November 6-8, 2018, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA.

Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorld Expo within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.

A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
