ECR repository policy must block public access

Explanation

Allowing public access to the ECR repository risks leaking sensitive of abusable information

Possible Impact

Risk of potential data leakage of sensitive artifacts

Suggested Resolution

Do not allow public access in the policy

Insecure Example

The following example will fail the aws-ecr-no-public-access check.

resource "aws_ecr_repository" "foo" {
  name = "bar"
}

resource "aws_ecr_repository_policy" "foopolicy" {
  repository = aws_ecr_repository.foo.name

  policy = <<EOF
{
    "Version": "2008-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Sid": "new policy",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Principal": "*",
            "Action": [
                "ecr:GetDownloadUrlForLayer",
                "ecr:BatchGetImage",
                "ecr:BatchCheckLayerAvailability",
                "ecr:PutImage",
                "ecr:InitiateLayerUpload",
                "ecr:UploadLayerPart",
                "ecr:CompleteLayerUpload",
                "ecr:DescribeRepositories",
                "ecr:GetRepositoryPolicy",
                "ecr:ListImages",
                "ecr:DeleteRepository",
                "ecr:BatchDeleteImage",
                "ecr:SetRepositoryPolicy",
                "ecr:DeleteRepositoryPolicy"
            ]
        }
    ]
}
EOF
}

Secure Example

The following example will pass the aws-ecr-no-public-access check.

resource "aws_ecr_repository" "foo" {
  name = "bar"
}

resource "aws_ecr_repository_policy" "foopolicy" {
  repository = aws_ecr_repository.foo.name

  policy = <<EOF
