Chef Automate Compliance - In Person
Please contact your Chef Sales representative if you are interested in having Chef deliver an In-Person course for your team, or send an email to email@example.com. If you would like to attend one of our virtual classes, please go to our Online Instructor-led Training at chef.io/training.
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.
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
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.
It was great.
Excellent information presented by an experienced practitioner and an excellent presenter.
I will recommend this class to my organization as one of the more complete solutions to on boarding new Chef users.
Robin Beck provided an excellent training: he was very knowledgeable and held a very comprehensive two day training session!
Class was excellent, and the Instructor was even better! Robin Beck is the best!
The lab setups are excellent and allow the class to focus on the training objectives. It was a great way to get hands on experience with Compliance in one day.
