GCP Security Review Tools


G-Scout is a tool for auditing Google Cloud Platform configurations. By making API calls, applying security rules, and generating HTML files based on the output, G-Scout makes it easy to analyze the security of a GCP environment.


gcp-audit takes a set of projects and audits them for common issues as defined by its ruleset. Issues can include, but are certainly not limited to, storage buckets with read/write permissions for anyone and compute engine instances with services exposed to the Internet.


Scout Suite is an open source multi-cloud security-auditing tool, which enables security posture assessment of cloud environments. Using the APIs exposed by cloud providers, Scout Suite gathers configuration data for manual inspection and highlights risk areas. Rather than going through dozens of pages on the web consoles, Scout Suite presents a clear view of the attack surface automatically.

Scout Suite was designed by security consultants/auditors. It is meant to provide a point-in-time security-oriented view of the cloud account it was run in. Once the data has been gathered, all usage may be performed offline.


Python scripts for collecting and visualising Google Cloud Platform IAM permissions

GCP IAM graph is created using vis.js and it’s static HTML page, see example interactive graph

Example graph


A script to enumerate Google Storage buckets, determine what access you have to them, and determine if they can be privilege escalated.

gcloud command-line tool

The gcloud command-line interface is the primary CLI tool to create and manage Google Cloud resources. You can use this tool to perform many common platform tasks either from the command line or in scripts and other automations. This tool can be used to identify security misconfigurations manually.
