Secure your IT environments with the powerful security tools of Puppet
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
If you are a security professional whose workload is increasing, or a Puppet professional looking to increase your knowledge of security, or even an experienced systems administrator, then this book is for you. This book will take you to the next level of security automation using Puppet. The book requires no prior knowledge of Puppet to get started.
What You Will Learn
As application and server environments become more complex, managing security and compliance becomes a challenging situation. By utilizing Puppet and the tools associated with it, you can simplify and automate many of the more repetitive security-related tasks.
Beginning with the simplest cases, you will quickly get up and running by looking at an example Puppet manifest. Moving on, you will learn how to use Puppet to track changes to environments and how this can be used for compliance. As your knowledge increases, you will then get to explore community modules and learn how they can help simplify the deployment of your Puppet environment by using pre-written code contributed by community members. By the end of this book, you will be able to implement a complete centralized logging solution using Logstash and community modules.
