Description Šimon Lukašík 2015-09-30 04:31:05 EDT
Description of problem:
SCAP-Security-Guide (SSG) contains configuration hardening advice of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Some customers are contributing fixes directly to upstream. The expectation is that we ship these fixes/improvements along the RHEL update release.

SCAP-Security-Guide (SSG) is low risk rebase component. It contains only bunch of XML files.
Comment 3 Šimon Lukašík 2015-10-15 03:18:50 EDT
Jan, we have been asked to update this bug with the list of features and justifications for this rebase. Can you help me to complete the list?

1) Bugfixes to rhel6 content (created by community of customers in ssg upstream)
2) rhel7 policy updated (mainly PCI-DSS final) -- this is useful for remote scan of rhel7 from rhel6 (through SCAP-Workbench or Satellite)
3) There are some amends/finalization of USGCB content
4) New profile (pci-dss) for rhel6 has been introduced in upstream.
