Everything in this sub-section applies to running the purpleteam CLI configured for the cloud environment. (AKA BinaryMist PurpleTeam)

PurpleTeam cloud Architecture

The following diagram shows how the purplteam components communicate. In the cloud environment all you need to be concerned with is the purpleteam CLI and of course making sure your System Under Test (SUT) is listening, in a clean state, and reachable from the Cloud:

Your System Under Test (SUT)

Make sure the Web application or API (SUT) that you wish to target is up and responding to requests.

If your SUT is not yet ready, an option may be to use what the PurpleTeam-Labs development team uses for their SUTs (purpleteam-iac-sut). PurpleTeam-Labs use purpleteam-iac-sut for both local and cloud testing.
