Fugue Announces IaC Security for AWS CloudFormation in Regula
May 13, 2021

Fugue announced support for AWS CloudFormation in Regula, the open-source infrastructure as code (IaC) policy engine.

Cloud engineering and security teams can now use Regula to secure their AWS CloudFormation and Terraform configurations prior to deployment—and apply those same rules to running cloud environments using the Fugue platform to secure the entire cloud development lifecycle.

Regula is ideal for organizations with DevOps teams that use both AWS CloudFormation and Terraform—and those operating multi-cloud environments. Regula is an AWS CloudFormation security tool that can address vulnerabilities involving multiple resources, and helps teams meet the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmarks 1.2.0 and 1.3.0. Regula easily integrates into CI/CD pipelines and enables pre-commit IaC checks and provides pull request feedback. Fugue provides examples of Regula working with GitHub Actions for CI/CD.

While Regula works independently of Fugue, teams can use Fugue to apply the same Regula rules to assess the security posture of their running AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud cloud infrastructure environments, eliminating the investment and cloud risk associated with using and reconciling different policy frameworks for different stages of the cloud development lifecycle and for different cloud platforms.

“Companies operating at scale in the cloud need a policy as code framework that’s flexible, works with the leading infrastructure as code tools, and can be used across cloud platforms at every stage of the cloud development lifecycle,” said Josh Stella, Co-Founder and CEO of Fugue. “By extending Regula support to AWS CloudFormation, cloud engineering and security teams now have a unified cloud policy framework that works with their tools and workflows, giving them the confidence to move faster in the cloud—without breaking the rules needed to keep cloud infrastructure secure and in compliance.”

Regula’s rule library checks for a wide variety of cloud misconfiguration vulnerabilities, such as dangerously permissive AWS IAM policies and security group rules, S3 buckets without “block public access” options enabled, Lambda function policies allowing global access, VPCs with flow logs disabled, EBS volumes with encryption disabled, and untagged cloud resources.

Regula supports user-defined rules using the Rego query language developed by the Open Policy Agent project—and includes helper libraries that enable users to easily build their own rules that conform to enterprise policies. Fugue created and open-sourced Fregot, a tool that enables developers to easily evaluate Rego expressions, debug code, and test policies.
