Description amitkuma 2019-09-25 14:14:33 UTC
Description of problem:

RHEL-8 does not contain DISA STIG profile separately.

# oscap info --profiles ssg-rhel8-ds.xml
xccdf_org.ssgproject.content_profile_ospp:Protection Profile for General Purpose Operating Systems
xccdf_org.ssgproject.content_profile_pci-dss:PCI-DSS v3.2.1 Control Baseline for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 

But some rules in ssg-rhel8-ds.xml are written with DISA STIG in mind example:
1. xccdf_org.ssgproject.content_rule_audit_rules_unsuccessful_file_modification
2. xccdf_org.ssgproject.content_rule_audit_rules_kernel_module_loading

a. Being said, DISA STIG is more of a derivative of the OSPP profile, Can customer's use OSPP for hardening systems for DISA-STIG standards?
b. if ospp is being worked on to make DISA STIG complaint
    -> In which RHEL version, scap-security-guide version(Current version:0.1.46-1.el8) OSPP profile will contain all rules defined by DISA STIG standards?
c. Or Can we say current scap-security-guide(scap-security-guide-0.1.42-11.el8.noarch.rpm) is fully DISA STIG complaint, If customers harden their system with ospp, their systems are DISA STIG complaint?
