PanSift installs as a Github App on a chosen repository. It honeytokens with Thinkst canarytokens out-of-the-box!
It is inevitable that attackers will exploit a vulnerability and get some level of initial access to your infrastructure, systems, or apps. They don't sit still and continue to penetrate deeper, move laterally, and attempt to escalate privileges to gather data. They harvest access credentials, API keys, and hostnames related to key accounts or systems.
A honeytoken is a digital lure or tripwire. They can be pseudo-valid usernames/passwords, an API key, a hostname, a PDF file, or other digital asset. They are designed so that once they are accessed or used, they alert your security team (like a canary in a coal mine!). A good example is a set of AWS client/secret keys left in a configuration file that no one but trusted staff should have access to. Once used or accessed, the honeytoken is tripped, and it's time to react to this high-fidelity signal of intrusion.
PanSift empowers your defenders and developers to gain the upper hand by amplifying their situational awareness, enabling rapid incident response, and increasing peace of mind! Embrace a new form of continuous determinstic security and don't leave your organisation or customer data exposed for months!
PanSift does not need nor request access to your code. PanSift automatically honeytokens a specific file per Pull Request. You can leave a honeytoken there or move it to other parts of your build during deploys (dress them up as you see fit)! Use PanSift across private repositories/branches that are deployed anywhere where there is risk of exploit, attack, or compromise such as Internet facing SaaS, cloud infrastructure, or restricted internal systems or apps.
