Microsoft 365 provides office apps, extra cloud storage, advanced security, and many more in one convenient subscription basis.
Azure provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to authenticated customers on a metered pay-as-you-go basis.
CIS Microsoft 365 Benchmark provide a predefined set of compliance and security best-practice checks for Microsoft Office 365 usage.
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 Azure Active Directory and the Microsoft 365 plugins with Steampipe:
steampipe plugin install azureadsteampipe plugin install microsoft365
git clone https://github.com/turbot/steampipe-mod-microsoft365-compliance.gitcd steampipe-mod-microsoft365-compliance/
Start your dashboard server to get started:
By default, the dashboard interface will then be launched in a new browser window at http://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 benchmark:
steampipe check benchmark.cis_v140
Run a specific control:
steampipe check control.cis_v140_1_1_3
Different output formats are also available, for more information please see Output Formats.
No extra configuration is required.
Common and Tag Dimensions
The benchmark queries use common properties (like
tenant_id) 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_v140_1_1 --var 'common_dimensions=["connection_name", "tenant_id"]'steampipe check benchmark.cis_v140_1_1 --var 'tag_dimensions=["Department", "Environment"]'
Set an environment variable:SP_VAR_common_dimensions='["connection_name", "tenant_id"]' steampipe check control.cis_v140_1_1SP_VAR_tag_dimensions='["Department", "Environment"]' steampipe check control.cis_v140_1_1_12
