Chef Software is contributing OpenStack Baseline

I am happy to announce that the Chef Partners Team contributed a new OpenStack Baseline to our DevSec project. This Baseline is implementing the OpenStack Security Guide in InSpec. JJ Asghar will continue to be a core maintainer.

The baseline is already covering a wide range of checks for:

  • block-storage
  • compute
  • dashboard
  • identity
  • networking
  • orchestration
  • telemetry

But we still have some white spots:

  • data-processing
  • databases
  • messaging

The baseline is designed to work hand-in-hand with multiple configuration management tools like Ansible, Chef or Puppet, which allows you to run the baseline easily against existing deployments.

To achieve the our standards, we are looking for more contributors to drive that project forward.

Thank you, Chris
