Terraform enables you to safely and predictably create, change, and improve infrastructure.
The easy_infra project includes and secures Terraform as a component due to its popularity and versitility in provisioning and updating environments as Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
Terraform security is included in all of the
easy_infra tags, including
minimal, aws, az, and latest
If you use Software Version Control (such as
git) to manage your Terraform
IaC, consider executing
terraform validate with easy_infra as a pipeline
action on commit or pull request:
docker run -v $(pwd):/iac seiso/easy_infra:latest-minimal terraform validate
You can also use easy_infra to deploy your infrastructure using
docker run -v $(pwd):/iac seiso/easy_infra:latest-minimal /bin/bash -c "terraform plan && terraform apply -auto-approve"
If you’re working with the same terraform code across multiple runs, you can leverage the cache:
docker run -v $(pwd):/iac -v $(pwd)/plugin-cache:/home/easy_infra/.terraform.d/plugin-cache easy_infra:latest-minimal /bin/bash -c "terraform init; terraform validate"
Configuring custom checks can be done by leveragin the robust Rego language, maintained by the, Open Policy Agent (OPA) offers useful resources for cloud native infrastructure administrators. Their example Terraform workflow is available here.
OPA also hosts The Rego Playground for testing custom Terrascan rules.
