Chef Automate Compliance

Chef Automate Compliance

Summary

How can you ensure that your systems are secure without slowing down your deployments? With Chef Automate compliance, you express your security requirements as code and automate the assessment and remediation of your infrastructure.

Description

In the instructor-led Chef Automate compliance course, you will learn how to use the Chef Automate compliance UI, perform compliance scans against Windows and Linux nodes, and remediate compliance issues.

In addition, you will learn how to use InSpec, Chef's open source testing framework for infrastructure. You will create and modify compliance profiles and you will also learn how to use the Chef audit cookbook, which allows you to run InSpec compliance profiles as part of the chef-client run. This course includes hands-on exercises to reinforce the material.

One day course agenda:

  • Chef Automate compliance overview
  • Using the Chef Automate UI
  • Running compliance scans, remediating issues, and re-scanning nodes
  • Creating and managing custom compliance profiles using InSpec 
  • Using the audit cookbook
  • Scheduling scans and running reports

  • Windows 7 or higher with ssh enabled
  • Mac OS X with ssh enabled
  • Ubuntu 14.04 with ssh enabled

Attendees should have administrative access to the laptop.

I don't usually like online training, but this training was great and Eric is really good, well-organized, and in control. The way he engaged each participants is amazing, and how he troubleshoot issues.

- The MITRE Corporation

Class was excellent, and the Instructor was even better! Robin Beck is the best!

- CRITEO

This was the best training class I've taken. It was online using Zoom, it was super easy to share code and collaborate. The instructor kept everything going at a perfect pace and his knowledge and expertise on the topic was evident. 22 years of training in my career and this was hands down the best class I've taken. Better than classroom training. Looking forward to more!

Even though I've been using Chef for three years, I found this class immensely useful; not only did it allow me to examine and compare my current practices to those presented in the training, but I learned several new techniques for using Chef tools.
