1.8.2 OpenSCAP Support

The ​Open Security Content Automation Protocol (OpenSCAP) Guide package (scap-security-guide) provides guidance, baselines, and validation mechanisms for implementing security hardening of an Oracle Linux 6 system. OpenSCAP includes the oscap utility that you use to test the security compliance of a system and produce an online report that describes security policy requirements and how your system measures up to these requirements. OpenSCAP enables you to check system compliance, as required by your site security policy.
