A Chef cookbook for configuring a server to be used as a bastion host for remote access to and administration of an otherwise walled-off network.
This cookbook is written to hopefully work on, or be expandable to, other distros, but is currently only tested against Ubuntu Linux.
Some of the dependencies are pinned to older versions in order to maintain compatibility--for now--with Chef 11.
Override any included attributes as needed and add
bastion to your run_list.
Refreshes the APT cache and configures the firewall and remote desktop (below).
Installs certain base dev tools--currently Git and Ruby.
If the firewall enabled attribute is set to true (the default), enables the system firewall and pokes holes in it for SSH (port 22) from an attribute-specified set of trusted networks.
If the firewall is not set to enabled, it disables it.
Installs X2go, Google Chrome, and Firefox.
Installs + enables + starts Auditd, using rules based on the base STIG ruleset.
default['bastion']['firewall']['enabled'] = true
Whether or not the system firewall should be enabled. This can be overridden to false if, for example, port access is instead being handled solely in your cloud provider's security configuration.
default['bastion']['firewall']['trusted_networks'] = %w( 10.0.0.0/8 172.16.0.0/12 192.168.0.0/16 )
The set of CIDR ranges to allow access from in the system firewall.
