Leap Platform

Build Status

The LEAP Platform is set of complementary packages and server recipes to automate the maintenance of LEAP services in a hardened Debian environment. Its goal is to make it as painless as possible for sysadmins to deploy and maintain a service provider's infrastructure for secure communication. These recipes define an abstract service provider. It is a set of Puppet modules designed to work together to provide to sysadmins everything they need to manage a service provider infrastructure that provides secure communication services.

Getting started

It is highly recommended that you start by reading the overview of the LEAP Platform and then begin with the Quick Start tutorial to walk through a test environment setup to get familiar with how things work before deploying to live servers.

An offline copy of this documentation is contained in the docs subdirectory:

cd leap_platform
gnome-open docs/index.html


For testing a virtual deployment simulated on your computer, you will need a fairly recent computer x86_64 with hardware virtualization features (AMD-V or VT-x) and plenty of RAM. If you follow the "Quick Start" documentation we will walk you through using Vagrant to setup a test deployment.

For a live deployment of the platform, the number of servers that is required depends on your needs and which services you want to deploy. At the moment, the LEAP Platform supports servers with a base Debian Jessie installation.


If you are upgrading from a previous version of the LEAP Platform, take special care to follow the instructions detailed in the to move from one release to the next.


If you have a problem, we are interested in fixing it!

If you have a problem, be sure to have a look at the Known Issues to see if your issue is detailed there.

If not, the best way for us to solve your problem is if you provide to us the complete log of what you did, and the output that was produced. Please don't cut out what appears to be useless information and only include the error that you received, instead copy and paste the complete log so that we can better determine the overall situation. If you can run the same command that produced the error with a raised verbosity level (such as -v2), that provides us with more useful debugging information.

To capture the log, you can copy from the console, or run leap --log FILE or edit Leapfile to include @log = '/tmp/leap.log'.

Visit for details on how to contact the developers.

Known issues



  • If you have any errors during a run, please try to deploy again as this often solves non-deterministic issues that were not uncovered in our testing. Please re-deploy with leap -v2 deploy to get more verbose logs and capture the complete output to provide to us for debugging.
