Amazon Inspector is an automated vulnerability management service that continually scans an AWS cloud environment for software vulnerabilities and limitations. After each assessment, Amazon Inspector provides a detailed list of security and compliance findings ranked according to severity.
AWS Lambda, the serverless compute platform from Amazon, now offers support for Amazon Inspector. This augmented capacity allows Amazon Inspector to automate the detection of each appropriate Lambda function and pinpoint all software vulnerabilities in the dependencies present in application packages utilized in Lambda functions and layers.
The AWS Lambda Vulnerability Assessment Playground leverages this new functionality to help you learn how to perform continual, automated vulnerability assessments for Serverless compute workloads. Using hands-on labs, you’ll learn how to enable Inspector and perform automated security assessments on your serverless Lambda functions

Playgrounds are sandbox-style lab environments where you need to attack and defend a target application from each vulnerability. Our learn-by-doing approach ensures concepts are retained.
