Azucar is a multi-threaded plugin-based tool to help you assess the security of your Azure Cloud environment.

The script will not change or modify any assets deployed in an Azure subscription.

As the script uses the .NET ADAL library for authenticating a user and calling REST APIs, it only supports Windows OS.


  • Return a number of attributes on computers, users, groups, contacts, events, etc… from Azure Active Directory.
  • Search for High Level Accounts in a specific Azure Tenant, including Azure Active Directory, classic administrators, and Directory Roles (RBAC).
  • Multi-Threading support.
  • Plugin Support.
  • The following assets are supported by Azucar:
  • Azure SQL Databases, including MySQL and PostgreSQL databases,
  • Azure Active Directory,
  • Storage Accounts,
  • Classic Virtual Machines,
  • Virtual Machines V2,
  • Security Status,
  • Security Policies,
  • Role Assignments (RBAC),
  • Missing Security Patches,
  • Missing Security Baseline,
  • Web Application Firewall,
  • Network Security Groups,
  • Classic Endpointsy,
  • Azure Security Alerts,

Azucar works straight out of the box with PowerShell version 3.x and .NET4.5. To check a Windows PowerShell version, open a console and run the command $PsVersionTable:

PS C:\Users\silverhack> $psversiontable

Name                           Value
----                           -----
