AWS Key Disabler - A Small Lambda Script That Will Disable Access Keys Older Than A Given Amount Of Days

The AWS Key disabler is a Lambda Function that disables AWS IAM User Access Keys after a set amount of time in order to reduce the risk associated with old access keys.

AWS Lambda Architecture


SysOps Output for EndUser


Developer Toolchain


Current Limitations
  • A report containing the output (json) of scan will be sent to a single defined sysadmin account, refer to the report_to attribute in the /grunt/package.json build configuration file.
  • Keys are only disabled, not deleted nor replaced

Prerequisites
This script requires the following components to run.
It also assumes that you have an AWS account with SES enabled, ie domain verified and sandbox mode removed.

Installation instructions
These instructions are for OSX. Your mileage may vary on Windows and other *nix.
  1. Grab yourself a copy of this script
  2. Navigate into the /grunt folder
  3. Setup the Grunt task runner, e.g. install its deps: npm install
  4. Fill in the following information in /grunt/package.json
    1. Set the aws_account_number value to your AWS account id found on https://portal.aws.amazon.com/gp/aws/manageYourAccount
    2. Set the first_warning and last_warning to the age that the key has to be in days to trigger a warning. These limits trigger an email send to report_to
    3. Set the expiry to the age in days when the key expires. At this age the key is disabled and an email is triggered to report_to notifying this change
    4. Set the serviceaccount to the account username you want the script to ignore
    5. Set the exclusiongroup to the name of a group assigned to users you want the script to ignore.
    6. Set the send_completion_report value to True to enable email delivery via SES
    7. Set the report_to value to the email address you'd like to receive deletion reports to
    8. Set the report_from value to the email address you'd like to use as the sender address for deletion reports. Note that the domain for this needs to be verified in AWS SES.
    9. Set the deployment_region to a region that supports Lambda. 10 Set the email_region to the region that supports SES. Also ensure that the region has SES sandbox mode disabled.
  5. Ensure you can successfully connect to AWS from the CLI, eg run aws iam get-user to verify successful connection
  6. from the /grunt directory run grunt bumpup && grunt deployLambda to bump your version number and perform a build/deploy of the Lambda function to the selected region

Invoke the Lambda Function manually from the commandline using the AWSCLI
Execute the lambda function by name, AccessKeyRotation, logging the output of the scan to a file called scan.report.log:
aws lambda invoke --function-name AccessKeyRotation scan.report.log --region us-east-1
{
    "StatusCode": 200
}
Use jq to render the contents of the scan.report.log to the console:
jq '.' scan.report.log

Additional configuration option
  • You can choose to set the message used for each warning and the final disabling by changing the values under key_disabler.keystates.<state>.message
  • You can change the length of masking under key_disabler.mask_accesskey_length. The access keys are 20 characters in length.

Troubleshooting

Bonus Points
Once the Lambda Function has been successfully deployed - the following commands can be performed:
  1. aws lambda list-functions
  2. openssl dgst -binary -sha256 ..\Releases\AccessKeyRotationPackage.1.0.18.zip | openssl base64
  3. aws lambda invoke --function-name AccessKeyRotation report.log --region us-east-1
  4. jq '.' report.log
  5. jq '.users[] | select(.username=="johndoe")' report.log
  6. jq '.' report.log | grep age | cut -d':' -f2 | sort -n

Bonus Bonus Points
  1. jq 'def maximal_by(f): (map(f) | max) as $mx | .[] | select(f == $mx); .users | maximal_by(.keys[].age)' report.log
  2. jq 'def minimal_by(f): (map(f) | min) as $mn | .[] | select(f == $mn); .users | minimal_by(.keys[].age)' report.log
