Eliminate hassle and inherent risks associated with manually requesting and installing certificates
Scales easily with Cookbook instance across any number of Chef nodes from a single master
Automatically comply with corporate security policies defined by information security teams
Examples require no coding, uses Chef recipe attribute files to define config options
Implemented fast native Chef recipes (chainable) for Venafi authentication, certificate requests, retrieval, renewal and revocation
Enables key and certificate operations on Chef nodes to be fully automated
The Venafi Platform lets organizations realize the benefits of Fast IT without compromising security. Security teams can now centrally define policy through the Venafi API and enable DevOps to properly comply with security policies and best practices. Venafi makes it easy for DevOps teams using Chef to automate the procurement of X.509 machine identities. The Venafi-Chef integration consists of an example “cookbook” that can easily be adapted by Chef administrators, operators or developers. The cookbook can be used with the Venafi REST API to provision certificates from the Venafi Platform directly to Chef nodes, ensuring they comply with security policies.
