Chef Compliance

Chef Compliance Course Description

Duration: 1.00 days (8 hours)

How can you ensure that your systems are secure without slowing down your deployments? With Chef Compliance, you express your security requirements as code and automate the assessment and remediation of your infrastructure. In the instructor-led Chef Compliance course, you will learn how to install and configure the Chef Compliance server, perform compliance scans against Windows and Linux nodes, remediate compliance issues, and generate compliance reports.

In addition, you will learn how to use InSpec, Chef's open source testing framework for infrastructure. You will create and modify Chef Compliance profiles and also locate Center for Internet Security (CIS) and Department of Defense (DoD) compliance specifications that you can use to write Chef Compliance profiles. This course includes hands-on exercises to reinforce the material.
