Session: Don't Mind the Gap: How to Deploy Chef in Offline or 'Airgapped' Network
In high security environments, we are often behind proxies, firewalls or obnoxious corporate policies that disallow access to Github or RubyGems. What gives?! In this session, I will show exactly what it takes to set up your Chef environment in the offline world. I'll demonstrate how to download Chef packages, how to stand up the various Chef servers (Delivery, Insights, Compliance, Chef, Supermarket) and, most importantly, how to bootstrap systems in a way that they won't talk to the Internet. Topics will include (but not limited to): Gem, Artifact and Yum repositories; Chef package management; Provisioning/bootstrapping new systems; and Test-Kitchen. While this could all be done manually, that takes a lot of effort and isn't repeatable. So I'll be using Chef and other open source tools to accomplish this. All code will be open-sourced.
