Automate Secure Infrastructure with Packer, Vault and Terraform

Training Summary
Transitioning from traditional infrastructure deployment and management processes can be challenging. Implementing infrastructure as code principles and using best practices leads to repeatable results, fewer manual errors, and overall quicker application releases for your customers. This class focuses on using automation tools to build, deploy, and manage security-hardened infrastructure. Using Packer, students can automate building a golden base image consisting of company policies and best practices. This image can then be deployed with Terraform, using Vault to manage sensitive passwords and secrets.
Attendees should have a basic understanding of Linux and command-line experience.
