Building a Hyper-Secure VPC on AWS with Puppet

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will describe the techniques and patterns used in a real life project where the goal was to: build a VPC on AWS, make it extremely secure on all accounts, do it automated.

I will describe how you can take Puppet and AWS and introduce all kinds of real life security measures, all managed by Puppet. These security measures include: Log collection and analysis (in combination with Graylog2), Transparent Proxy Hosts for DMZ separation, Host Based Firewalls to augment the non-logging AWS firewalls/security groups, CIS (Center for Internet Security) Benchmark enforcement on standard AWS Linux AMIs, change tracking with SVN.

This session will highlight where Puppet saved the day but also where integration was troublesome.
