Ansible role to DevOps-ify network security management, leveraging AlgoSec's business-driven security policy management solution

Documentation available online at:


* This module is supported and fully tested under ``python2.7`` and ``python3.6``.

* All modules of this role require environment::

pip install algosec --upgrade
pip install ansible marshmallow urllib3

The Ansible role can be installed directly from Ansible Galaxy by running::

ansible-galaxy install algosec.algosec

If the ``ansible-galaxy`` command-line tool is not available (usually shipped with Ansible), or you prefer to download the role package directly,
navigate to the Ansible Galaxy `role page <>`_ and hit "Download".

Alternately, you can directly navigate to our `GitHub repository <>`_.


Once installed, you can start using the modules included in this role in your ansible playbooks.

To quickly get up and running a simple example you can follow these steps:

1. Download and unzip locally the examples folder by clicking `here <>`_.
2. Update authentication credentials in ``vars/algosec-secrets.yml``.
3. Update your AlgoSec server IP in ``inventory.ini``.
4. Update the arguments of the relevant modules in one of the playbooks (files with the ``yml`` extension).
5. Run ``ansible-playbook -i inventory.ini <playbook-filename>.yml``.
6. You've made it!
