SCP? It’s that handy file-transfer feature of SSH, right? Well, not quite. It’s more of a hack. Or an undocumented, unstandardized mashup of two protocols. Let’s look at the exciting (and scary) details. Secure Copy Protocol (SCP) allows us to move files (and directories) between two computers. Using it is straightforward: This will copy local_file.txt to another computer (usually a server) with domain name remote_host into the /home directory.

In under five years time, Kubernetes has become the default method for deploying and managing cloud applications, a remarkably fast adoption rate for any enterprise technology. Amongst other things, Kubernetes’s power lies in its ability to map compute resources to the needs of services in the current infrastructure paradigm. But how does this tool work when faced with the new infrastructure layer that is blockchain? Can the two technologies be used in conjunction?

With their rapidly changing architecture and API-driven automation, cloud platforms come with unique security challenges and opportunities. This hands-on book guides you through security best practices for multivendor cloud environments, whether your company plans to move legacy on-premises projects to the cloud or build a new infrastructure from the ground up.

While SSH has always been a popular attack vector, the increased adoption of elastic, cloud infrastructure and dynamic, micro-service architecture using containerized application services (aka, "cloud-native" applications), has resulted in the additional complexity of having application services that can migrate across dynamic server infrastructure. This makes managing access to applications and their infrastructure through SSH more complicated and more prone to security threats.

In this paper, we will provide a brief description of what SSM Session Manager is and how it compares to Gravitational's Teleport privileged access management solution. We'll compare the significant design and feature differences and the operational overhead of the solutions. Because Session Manager is limited to AWS, we'll limit the scope of the discussion to that cloud provider. Finally, we have provided a feature matrix of the two solutions.
