Puppet MySQL hardening

Puppet Forge Build Status Gitter Chat


This Puppet module provides hardening configuration for MySQL.


  • Puppet
  • Supported module: puppetlabs/mysql (v2.x.x)




If you use puppetlabs/mysql:

# Configure MySQL Server as you normally would:
class { 'mysql::server':
  # ...

# now include hardening:
class { 'mysql_hardening':  provider => 'puppetlabs/mysql'}

Local Testing

For local testing you can use vagrant and Virtualbox of VMWare to run tests locally. You will have to install Virtualbox and Vagrant on your system. See Vagrant Downloads for a vagrant package suitable for your system. For all our tests we use test-kitchen. If you are not familiar with test-kitchen please have a look at their guide.

Next install test-kitchen:

# Install dependencies
gem install bundler
bundle install

# Fetch tests
bundle exec thor kitchen:fetch-remote-tests

# Do lint checks
bundle exec rake lint

# Do spec checks
bundle exec rake spec

# fast test on one machine
bundle exec kitchen test default-ubuntu-1204

# test on Debian-based machines
bundle exec kitchen test

# for development
bundle exec kitchen create default-ubuntu-1204
bundle exec kitchen converge default-ubuntu-1204

For more information see test-kitchen
