RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

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?
