Description Marek Haicman 2018-08-21 13:38:15 UTC
Description of problem:
OSPP profile shipped in RHEL7 is currently v4.0. As the latest version is v4.2, it's desired to have that version available, either as a replacement, or as a separate profile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. oscap info /usr/share/xml/scap/ssg/content/ssg-rhel7-ds.xml
2. open /usr/share/doc/scap-security-guide-doc-0.1.40/ssg-rhel7-guide-ospp.html from scap-security-guide-doc

Actual results:
No explicit OSPP profile, and USGCB profile has in the guide this:
NIAP Protection Profile for General Purpose Operating Systems v4.0 (OSPP v4.0)

Expected results:
Either explicit OSPP profile is available, following v4.2 or USGCB profile is updated.
