kitchen-inspec

Use InSpec as a Kitchen verifier with kitchen-inspec.

Add the InSpec verifier to the .kitchen.yml file:

  verifier:
    name: inspec

Use a compliance profile from the Chef Compliance server:

  suites:
    - name: compliance
      run_list:
        - recipe[ssh-hardening::default]
      verifier:
        inspec_tests:
          - compliance://base/ssh

and then run the following command:

  $ inspec compliance login https://compliance.test --user admin --insecure --token ''

where --insecure is required when using self-signed certificates.

Use a compliance profile from the Chef Supermarket:

  suites:
    - name: supermarket
      run_list:
        - recipe[ssh-hardening::default]
      verifier:
        inspec_tests:
          - supermarket://dev-sec/ssh-baseline

Use InSpec tests from the local file system:

  suites:
    - name: local
      run_list:
        - recipe[my_cookbook::default]
      verifier:
        inspec_tests:
          - test/integration/default
