SIMP, an open source Puppet framework that ensures a compliant state across environments, is now more than 10 years old. Let’s look at how SIMP has evolved with Puppet through the years and talk about lessons learned along the way. This will include initial module creation, testing and proof of concept, the various data backends, and finally a look at the present day SIMP Compliance Engine, the main data source for translating any compliance standard into something Puppet can enforce. This will include real world examples for how standards like CIS, HIPAA, and others including custom policies can all be tested, enforced, and reported on using SIMP.
