Chef InSpec 4.18.0 Released!

Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 4.18.0 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:

New Features

  • Exceptional: Use Waivers to mark controls as being administratively expected to fail.


  • What Do You Call...?: The interface resource now has a name property.
  • Dazed and Conf-user-ed: Expanded user resource to include the passwordage, maxbadpasswords, and badpasswordattempts properties with Windows.

Bug Fixes

  • Repaired: Fixed a regression in which most RSpec-based matchers were broken.
  • Understandable: The apt resources now correctly parse quoted repository addresses.
  • Back In Action: inspec env works again, instead of erroneously stacktracing.
