Continuous Compliance with InSpec

Feedback form is now closed.
InSpec is an open-source testing framework for infrastructure with a human-readable language for specifying compliance, security, and other policy requirements. Easily integrate automated tests that check for adherence to policy into any stage of your deployment pipeline.

This is a hands-on workshop that will give participants an introduction to InSpec and the ideas and practices required to achieve continuous compliance.  During this session, participants will:
  • Run InSpec locally on a machine
  • Run InSpec on a remote machine
  • Use InSpec in the Chef cookbook development process for integration testing

Attendees should bring a wifi-enabled laptop to the workshop.
Attendees will be given a remote workstation with all prerequisites installed. The only thing required to access these workstations will be an SSH client (PuTTY on Windows) and familiarity with a interactive text editor (Vi/Vim, Emacs, or Nano).
It's best that students of this class have some familiarity and comfort with the following:
  • Writing code (of just about any flavor) in a text editor
  • Working on the command line
  • Basic system administration – installing packages, configuring those packages, starting service
