Doc Text:
.`SCAP Security Guide` now provides OSPP 4.2.1 and NCP Profiles The OSPP (Protection Profile for General Purpose Operating Systems) profile has been updated, and it now conforms to OSPP 4.2.1 baseline. The profile with the `ospp42` ID has been merged to the OSPP profile. Administrators should switch systems using the `ospp42` profile to `ospp` because `ospp42` is no longer a valid ID. Additionally, the NCP (NIST National Checklist Program Security Guide) profile with the `ncp` ID has been introduced. The NCP profile conforms to the OSPP 4.2.1 and implements configuration requirements of additional policies. In particular CNSSI 1253, NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53, USGCB, and OS SRG.

Description Jan Černý 2019-03-21 12:47:10 UTC
Description of problem:
We ship both OSPP 4.0 profile (ID ospp) and OSPP 4.2 profile (ID ospp42).

OSPP 4.0 is now outdated and OSPP 4.2 is the only approved profile in public sector now.

OSPP 4.0 profile should be removed and replaced by OSPP 4.2, using ID ospp.

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

Actual results:
both profile IDs ospp42 and ospp are there

Expected results:
profile id=ospp is there, the content of profile with id=ospp is aligned to OSPP 4.2, profile id=ospp42 isn't there

Verified manually for scap-security-guide-0.1.46-1.el7.noarch

Profile ID ospp42 has been renamed to ospp (Protection Profile for General Purpose Operating Systems v4.2.1) and the original profile ID ospp has been renamed to the profile ID ncp (NIST National Checklist Program Security Guide).
