Middy FunctionShield middleware

Middy logo

FunctionShield middleware for the middy framework, the stylish Node.js middleware engine for AWS Lambda

Hardens AWS Lambda execution environment:

  • By monitoring (or blocking) outbound network traffic to public internet, you can be certain that your data is never leaked (traffic to AWS services is not affected)
  • By disabling read/write operations on the /tmp/ directory, you make sure that files are not persisted across invocations. Storing data in /tmp is a bad practice as it may be leaked in subsequent invocations
  • By disabling the ability to launch child processes, you can make sure that no rogue processes are spawned without your knowledge by potentially malicious packages
  • By disabling the ability to read the function's (handler) source code through the file system, you can prevent handler source code leakage, which is oftentimes the first step in a serverless attack
