GCP Compliance Mod
Run individual configuration, compliance and security controls or full compliance benchmarks for
Forseti Security and
CFT Scorecard for all your GCP projects.
GCP provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to authenticated customers on a metered pay-as-you-go basis.
CFT Scorecard provides a set of security best-practice checks to detect misconfigurations and violations in Google Cloud resources and projects.
CIS GCP Benchmarks provide a predefined set of compliance and security best-practice checks for GCP projects.
Forseti Security Benchmark provides a set of security best practice checks for GCP projects so that you can take action to secure resources and minimize security risks.
Steampipe is an open source CLI to instantly query cloud APIs using SQL.
Steampipe Mods are collections of
named queries, and codified
controls that can be used to test current configuration of your cloud resources against a desired configuration.
Download and install Steampipe (https://steampipe.io/downloads). Or use Brew:
brew tap turbot/tapbrew install steampipe
Install the GCP plugin with Steampipe:
steampipe plugin install gcp
git clone https://github.com/turbot/steampipe-mod-gcp-compliance.gitcd steampipe-mod-gcp-compliance
Start your dashboard server to get started:
By default, the dashboard interface will then be launched in a new browser window at https://localhost:9194. From here, you can run benchmarks by selecting one or searching for a specific one.
Instead of running benchmarks in a dashboard, you can also run them within your
terminal with the
steampipe check command:
Run all benchmarks:
steampipe check all
Run a single benchmark:
steampipe check benchmark.cis_v130
Run a specific control:
steampipe check control.cis_v130_2_1
Different output formats are also available, for more information please see Output Formats.
This mod uses the credentials configured in the Steampipe GCP plugin.
No extra configuration is required.
Common and Tag Dimensions
The benchmark queries use common properties (like
project) and tags that are defined in the form of a default list of strings in the
mod.sp file. These properties can be overwritten in several ways:
Copy and rename the
steampipe.spvars, and then modify the variable values inside that file
Pass in a value on the command line:steampipe check benchmark.cis_v200 --var 'common_dimensions=["connection_name", "location", "project"]'steampipe check benchmark.cis_v200 --var 'tag_dimensions=["environment", "owner"]'
Set an environment variable:SP_VAR_common_dimensions='["connection_name", "location", "project"]' steampipe check control.cis_v120_6_2_4SP_VAR_tag_dimensions='["environment", "owner"]' steampipe check control.cis_v120_6_2_4
