About Running and Storing Compliance Assessments Remotely

The compliance utility enables you to assess multiple systems for compliance to security requirements. Remote assessments and reports use the remote administration daemon (RAD) to securely connect to remote systems. Therefore, to remotely run and store assessments, you must configure RAD on the communicating hosts. RAD requires a URI in a particular format to identify and authenticate you to a remote system.

For a description of valid RAD URIs, see Connecting in Python to a RAD Instance by Using a URI in Remote Administration Daemon Client User’s Guide and the rad(8) man page. To configure RAD for running and storing compliance assessments remotely, see Configuring Administrators to Run Remote Compliance Commands.

You can remotely set all the parameters that you can set for a local compliance assessment. For more information, see About Remote Assessment Features.
