🔐 Infrastructure Code Scanning Tools

1. Checkov:
Checkov is a static code analysis tool that helps developers prevent cloud misconfigurations during the development phase by scanning Terraform, CloudFormation, Kubernetes, and more.

2. Terrascan:
Terrascan detects security vulnerabilities and compliance violations across your IaC. Supports multiple cloud providers, ensuring that your infrastructure complies with security best practices.

3. tfsec:
tfsec uses a suite of security checks to scan your Terraform templates, helping to identify potential security issues before infrastructure is deployed.

Application Code Scanning Tools

1. Gitleaks:
Gitleaks provides a way for developers to find and prevent security breaches by scanning Git repositories for secrets like passwords and API keys.

2. SonarQube:
SonarQube enhances code quality and security. It performs automatic reviews to detect bugs, vulnerabilities, and code smells in your code.

3. Hadolint:
Hadolint is a Dockerfile linter that helps you build best practice Docker images, reducing vulnerabilities in your container configurations.

4. Trivy:
Trivy is a versatile tool that scans for vulnerabilities in your containers, and also checks for vulnerabilities in your application dependencies.

☸️ Kubernetes Cluster Scanning Tools
Outline tools that are crucial for ensuring the security and compliance of Kubernetes clusters:

1. Kubescape:
Kubescape is the first tool for testing if Kubernetes clusters are deployed securely as defined in Kubernetes Hardening Guidance by NSA and CISA.

2. Kubebench:
Kubebench is an open-source tool that checks whether Kubernetes is deployed according to security best practices as defined in the CIS Kubernetes Benchmark.

AWS Account Scanning Tool
Discuss how to maintain security posture across AWS accounts:

1. Prowler:
Prowler provides security best practices assessments, audits, incident response readiness, and continuous monitoring for AWS environments.

Chaos Engineering Service/Tool
Explain chaos engineering and its relevance to ensuring system resilience and reliability:

1. AWS Fault Injection Simulator (FIS):
Learn more about AWS FIS, a service that helps you perform fault injection experiments on AWS to create and manage controlled disruptions.

2. Gremlin:
Gremlin is a tool that helps companies build resilient systems through controlled experimentation on software infrastructure.
