The Apache Log4j vulnerability known as Log4Shell (CVE-2021-44228) is a serious vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code on any server running the popular Apache Log4j Java logging library. It has a CVSS score of 10, the highest possible value, and should be addressed immediately.
Today we announced the 1.0 release of Regula, Fugue’s open source policy engine for infrastructure as code (IaC) security. With this release, Regula now has hundreds of pre-built policies for checking IaC deployments for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, along with new tooling to make it easier to develop and test custom rules. Read about it at Help Net Security.
This week, Fugue announced support for AWS CloudFormation in Regula, the open-source policy engine for infrastructure as code (IaC). Regula has been gaining in popularity for performing pre-deployment security and compliance checks for Terraform, and we’re thrilled to extend Regula’s capabilities to address CloudFormation templates, including the Serverless Application Framework.
Recently, I was tasked with creating an automated testing tool for Fugue. Fugue monitors cloud resources for compliance and security, and we needed a way to verify that the full results of a Fugue scan were correct. My goal was to create an automated system that runs locally or in CI, deploys configurable infrastructure, scans it using Fugue, and verifies the results. This blog post walks through the design and implementation process for what became autotest, our internal automated testing tool.
Fugue allows you to easily and programmatically validate your cloud infrastructure for security and compliance. By integrating Fugue into your CI/CD pipeline, you can detect resource misconfiguration and compliance violations as part of every deployment.
We recently open sourced our tool Regula, which allows you to check your Terraform infrastructure as code for compliance prior to deployment. Regula can be used locally or as part of a CI/CD system, independently of Fugue or with Fugue.
The Fugue SaaS platform secures the entire cloud development lifecycle—from infrastructure as code through the cloud runtime. Fugue empowers cloud engineering and security teams to prove continuous compliance, build security into cloud development, and eliminate cloud misconfiguration.
