Continuous Attack Surface Monitoring of Web Services – Integrating Security into the Deployment Process

Cyber attacks on computer systems and networks have become an apparent threat and can cause significant damage to those companies affected. Many attacks exploit vulnerabilities of web services or underlying components, which can be detected by scanning tools or techniques from an external point of view. With the advancement of continuous deployment processes, the security parameters and, thus, the attack surface may change rapidly with each deployment. Therefore, this thesis aims to develop a framework to continuously monitor the attack surface of deployed web services based on security parameters produced in the deployment process.
