OPA is an open source policy as code framework and toolset which can be used to validate policy compliance of cloud infrastructure environments. Learn how OPA works, how cloud engineering and dev teams can leverage it and other open source tools to prevent deployment of resource misconfigurations.

The challenges of building and modifying at-scale cloud infrastructure environments led to the development of infrastructure as code, and now the challenges of managing the security and compliance of those environments has led to policy as code. Cloud environments are simply too vast, complex and dynamic to address with traditional security and compliance approaches such as manual audits and checklists. Open Policy Agent (OPA) is an open source policy as code framework and toolset that’s a part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
