Tailscale Compliance Mod
Run individual configuration, compliance and security controls or full compliance benchmarks for
Security Best Practices across all your Tailscale resources.
Tailscale is a VPN service that makes the devices and applications you own accessible anywhere in the world, securely and effortlessly. It enables encrypted point-to-point connections using the open source WireGuard protocol, which means only devices on your private network can communicate with each other.
Tailscale Security Best Practices provides best practices for using these features to harden your Tailscale deployment.
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 Tailscale plugin with Steampipe:
steampipe plugin install tailscale
git clone https://github.com/turbot/steampipe-mod-tailscale-compliance.gitcd steampipe-mod-tailscale-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.security_best_practices
Run a specific control:
steampipe check control.security_best_practices_device_authorization_enabled
Different output formats are also available, for more information please see Output Formats.
This mod uses the credentials configured in the Steampipe Tailscale plugin.
No extra configuration is required.
