For AWS cloud scan : once ScouteSuite is installed, we need to install aws cli to connect ScoutSuite to respective AWS cloud account.

Below are the steps to install aws-cli, Install aws-cli inside ScouteSuite folder.

$curl “https://awscli.amazonaws.com/awscli-exe-linux-x86_64.zip" -o “awscliv2.zip”
$unzip awscliv2.zip
$sudo ./aws/install

After aws-cli installation, configure aws account using below command
$aws configure

“AWS Access KEY ID” & “AWS Secret Access Key” is required to configure aws account. Navigate to IAM → Users → Security Credentials and click on “Create access key” to get “AWS Access KEY ID” & “AWS Secret Access Key”.
