G-Scout is a tool made to help assess the security of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environment configurations. By leveraging the Google Cloud API, G-Scout automatically gathers a variety of configuration data, and analyzes this data to determine security risks. It produces HTML output, which allows for convenient browsing of results.

The audited data relates to:

  • IAM roles
  • Compute engine instances
  • Storage buckets
  • Firewall rules
  • SQL and noSQL databases
  • Service account keys

G-Scout also allows users to create and customize rulesets simply by creating Python functions.

You can find G-Scout at https://github.com/nccgroup/G-Scout. It’s free to use and modify.
