Compliance Phase Improvements

Chef InSpec 4.52.9

Chef InSpec has been updated from 4.50.3 to 4.52.9 with the following updates:

New Features

  • Added remote target support for Alpine Linux.
  • Added the ability to specify a proxy as a parameter in the http resource.
  • Added support for TLS 1.3 to the ssl resource.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an edge case in the service resource where InSpec may falsely detect services as enabled on FreeBSD if that service is the suffix of another enabled service.
  • Fixed the ibmdb2_session resource so that it now correctly accepts queries with clauses.
  • Fixed the oracledb_session resource to properly handle nil in the query output.
  • Fixed the packages resource to correctly list only installed packages on Alpine Linux.
