Module Description

This module configures and maintains controls listed in the Center for Internet Security Benchmark for Linux. The current version of cisecurity implements v2.10 of the benchmark for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and v2.20 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. The module provides a lot of dials and knobs to fine-tune the module to your specific needs.

More information about the benchmark and downloading a copy of it for yourself is available at the Center for Internet Security.

Setup

What cisecurity affects

By default, this module implements all Level 1 and Level 2 controls and uses the defaults provided in the benchmark. Make sure to consult the module's documentation for default settings and alter as necessary. The defaults should not be intended as a one-size-fits-all solution.

cisecurity touches a wide variety of system-level settings including:

  • Filesystem owners, groups, and permissions
  • modprobe-enabled filesystems
  • Mount point configurations
  • Network subsystem
  • Addition/removal of packages
  • Package configurations
  • PAM
  • SELinux
  • Grub
  • User Accounts

Beginning with cisecurity

To use the cisecurity module with default parameters, declare the cisecurity class.

class { '::cisecurity': }

Usage

All parameters for the cisecurity module are broken down into various classes based on the components being modified.

Reference

Classes

  • cisecurity::filesystem: Handles the filesystem controls.
  • cisecurity::network: Handles the network controls.
  • cisecurity::packages: Handles the package and yum controls.
  • cisecurity::pam: Handles the PAM controls.
  • cisecurity::security: Handles Grub, SELinux, and other miscellaneous controls.
  • cisecurity::services: Handles the network controls.

Parameters

If you modify an Enum['enabled','disabled'] parameter to something other than the default, the module will not autocorrect the desired state of the system. You will need to go to that system and manually change the configuration to whatever you want it to be. cisecurity is designed to only enforce the controls in the benchmark and will not make assumptions of what you want a system's configuration to look like when you deviate.

For parameters in the cisecurity::packages class, if you modify an Enum['installed','uninstalled','ignored'] parameter, the class will attempt to install, purge, or ignore the specified package.
