Getting Started with Chef Automate

Categories: Chef, Guaranteed To Run™

Duration: 2 Days

The 2-day Getting Started with Chef Automate course is only available as a private training offering. Please email for more information.

How can you ensure that your systems are secure without slowing down your deployments? With Chef Automate, you express your security requirements as code and automate the assessment and remediation of your infrastructure.

In the instructor-led Getting Started with Chef Automate course, you will learn how to use the Chef Automate 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 use compliance profiles. In this course you’ll learn how to write Chef cookbooks and recipes that can be used to remediate compliance issues. 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.
