Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
New package: openscap-scanner A new package, openscap-scanner, is now provided to allow administrators to install and use the OpenSCAP scanner (oscap) without having to install all dependencies of the openscap-utils package, which previously contained the scanner tool. The separate packaging of the OpenSCAP scanner reduces potential security risks associated with installing unnecessary dependencies. The openscap-utils package is still available and contains other miscellaneous tools. Users who only need the oscap tool are advised to remove the openscap-utils package and install the openscap-scanner package.
