What this scan detects
  • Disabled origin access identity

    Having origin access identity not enabled in CloudFront could be problematic as it otherwise allows for objects to be access directly, potentially allowing for unregulated access to files.
  • Unencrypted origin traffic

    When you don't use HTTPS for your AWS CloudFront distributions, you are unable to ensure that the traffic between edge servers and the origin are encrypted. This poses the risk of bad actors being able to access the files being retrieved.
  • Disabled CloudFront logging

    When CloudFront logging is disabled, this means you are not recording any detailed content delivery activity taking place via CloudFront, leaving you with no way to examine potentially malicious or suspicious activity.
  • Insecure origin SSL protocols

    Using insecure origin SSL protocols can leave you vulnerable to malicious actors leveraging Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks to intercept or eavesdrop on content being delivered via the insecure network.
