Chef Automate Compliance
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
Attendees should bring a network-enabled laptop that has ssh enabled. Students will need to ssh into the course’s lab systems. For example:
- 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.
It’s best that learners have some familiarity with:
- Writing code (of just about any flavor) in a text editor such as nano, emacs or vi/vim
- Working on the command line
It was great.
Class was excellent, and the Instructor was even better! Robin Beck is the best!
Excellent information presented by an experienced practitioner and an excellent presenter.
I was sad to have the training end! The personalized attention from the instructor was priceless. Chef made sense and I LOVED it! Every question and problem were solved and explained. Truly craft masters of Chef, take this and be ready to be amazed. I'm applying what I learned the next week after the course. Thank you CHEF!
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.
This was the best course I've ever taken. The instructor was just GREAT!
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.
