What is the Open Security Registry?

Mondoo has created an open, browsable database of security, compliance, and best practice checks that you can access for free. This powerful resource is designed to help you evaluate and secure your business-critical IT infrastructure with cnspec in just a single click. Plus, it makes it super easy for security engineers to consume and share security best practices as code.

Why should you care? 

  • Collaboration: The Open Security Registry enables DevOps and security engineering teams to work together seamlessly, creating customized security solutions tailored to their unique needs. The contents of the registry are free to browse and use, no account required. It’s easy to share with everyone, even if they’re new to Mondoo.
  • Ease of use: Get started instantly. You can search the registry for specific technologies, compliance standards, or security scenarios. Then, with a single click, you can use the open source cnspec command-line tools to see immediate results.
