In this talk, HUG community member and Microsoft engineer Diego Casati shows us how to automate the creation of Jumpboxes, which are machines on a network used to access and manage devices in a separate security zone. Typically they are used to manage hosts in a DMZ from trusted networks or computers.

The key to making this automation and customization process easy, is HashiCorp Terraform and Packer. The session will also include tips for creating more advanced solutions with the use of Yubikeys to connect to the virtual machines.

This talk was part of the first HashiTalks online event—A 24-hour continuous series of presentations from the worldwide HashiCorp User Group (HUG) community and from HashiCorp engineers as well. The event took place from February 21-22, 2019.
