Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place.

postgres-hardening (Postgres cookbook)

Supermarket Build Status Code Coverage Dependencies Gitter Chat

Description

Provides security configurations for postgres.

Note: This is currently work in progress and not tested on all supported platforms

Requirements

  • Chef >= 12.5.1

Platform

  • Debian 7, 8
  • Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, 16.04
  • RHEL 6, 7
  • CentOS 6, 7
  • Oracle Linux 6, 7

Usage

This cookbook is optimized to work with os-hardening and ssh-hardening. It will play well without, but you need to ensure all preconditions like apt-get update or yum update are met.

add the following to your runlist and customize security option attributes

  "recipe[postgresql::server]",
  "recipe[postgres-hardening]"

You should also use the official postgres packages, because those offer the latest fixes. Enable the suitable option for the postgres cookbook.

"postgresql": {

   # debian, ubuntu
   "enable_pgdg_apt": true

   # rhel
   "enable_pgdg_yum": true

}

The hardening cookbook is only optimized for Postgresql 9.4. This can be activated for [postgres cookbook](https://github.com/sous-chefs/postgresql.

"postgresql": {
   version: "9.4"
}

Enable SSL

Please read http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.1/static/ssl-tcp.html first.

This cookbook will delete the links from /var/lib/postgresql/#{node['postgresql']['version']}/main/server.crt to /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem and /var/lib/postgresql/#{node['postgresql']['version']}/main/server.key to /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key on Debian systems. This certificates are self-signed (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_oil_%28cryptography%29) and therefore not trusted. You have to provide your own trusted certificates for SSL.
