Do I need to inform Digital Ocean about using Droplets as Penetration Testing/Red Teaming infrastructure?

  • Posted February 7, 2022

My company does penetration testing, red teaming activities, and some other services. If I use Digital Ocean as infrastructure to perform activities authorised by a client, do I need to make Digital Ocean aware?

I’ll recommend you to inform DigitalOcean just because the penetration tests might cause some strange traffic in their eyes thus resulting in the IPs doing so being blocked.

It’s always best to contact them in such cases, just in case!
