What is Target?

Last updated: 3 months ago

In CyStack Cloud Security, we define that a Target is an object that needs to be secured. We currently support the following types of target:


Website

It represents a website or web application and is identified by its URL, e.g. https://cystack.net


Server

It represents a server or a list of servers and is identified by their domains, IP addresses or CIDR, e.g cystack.net , 12.13.14.15 , 13.17.18.3-13.17.18.10 , 123.123.0.0/8 


Cloud services

Cloud services offered by AWS, Google Cloud or Azure are widely used. But if users set up them incorrectly, they will face security threats.

The cloud service target represents a cloud service account and is identified by a pair of Access key / Secret key / E.g.

Access key = AHIGQ123456789123456
Secret key = SECRET123456789.

These keys are stored securely on our side by using AWS KMS and the algorithm AES256. We only use them for security purposes described in the features of CyStack Cloud Security. 


Email

It represents an email of invidual or business and is identified by its address. E.g, contact@cystack.net 

Your email address is stored securely and is only used for security purposes described in the features of CyStack Cloud Security.
