This session introduces the System Integrity Management Platform (SIMP). SIMP is an open source project that uses Puppet and complementary tools to build a RHEL/CentOS-based infrastructure from the ground up. The primary goal of the project is to provide compliance with the NIST 800-53, the SCAP Security Guide and community best practice, while providing the flexibility required for business operations.
Trevor is a co-founder of Onyx Point, Inc. and has been using Puppet for around eight years to automate pretty much everything. He is the organizer of the Baltimore Puppet Users Group and a voracious open source supporter.
