arildjensen/cis — version 0.2.0 May 5th 2013

Overview

This module implements the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Security Configuration Benchmark for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 v.1.1.0 (avilable at http://benchmarks.cisecurity.org). Each scored control has been implemented as a class or a custom fact.

Installation

Please either:

Use

The class cis::el6all will enforce all the controls. If you wish to deviate please look for the el6all.pp file and use that as a template. Note that some of the scored controls not able to be written in Puppet code have been implemented as custom facts using Facter. Controls labeled "not scored" by the benchmark are not included.

Also note that there are two subclasses in the cis module, cis::linuxcontrols and cis::el6. The former implements the specific controls with a general name (such as cis::linuxcontrols::c0001), allowing for future re-use. The latter maps directly to a specific CIS control for RHEL6 (such as cis::el6::1_1_17 for control 1.1.17 in the benchmark).

User-Controlled Settings

Some of the settings, such as which log server to use, can be specified by the user. Below is a sample hiera file containing all the current configurable settings:

cis::logserver: 'syslog.localdomain'
cis::ntpserver:
  - ntp1
  - ntp2
  - ntp3
cis::aide_cron_check:
  hour: 6
  minute: 30
