Remote agent security considerations

Please note the following security implications when enabling remote agents for Bamboo:

  • No encryption of data passed between server and agent — this includes data such as:
    • login credentials for version control repositories
    • build logs
    • build artifacts
  • No authentication of the agent or server — this could result in unauthorised actions being taken on your system, such as:
    • Unauthorised parties installing new remote agents — version control repository login credentials could be stolen.
    • Unauthorised parties masquerading as a Bamboo server — the unauthorised server could pass malicious code to the agent to run.
    • See Agent authentication for more information.

We strongly recommend that you do not enable remote agent installation on any Bamboo instance accessible from a public or untrusted network. Creating remote agents is Disabling and enabling remote agents support by default.
