Description Šimon Lukašík 2012-11-01 12:06:42 EDT
Description of problem:
oscap tool takes several command-line arguments, but spacewalk-oscap
package whitelists only a few of them (it enables only those, which do
not posse security risk for client system scanned by Satellite). New
oscap tool brings couple of new features which might be benefitial for
Satellite user running scan.

Newly added command-line options are:
(1) --cpe-dict and --cpe-dict2 
These enable scanning with CPE dictionary. This is required growing
number of SCAP contents. (To name few: STIG, USGCB, scap-security-guide)
(2) --fetch-remote-resources
This one enables fetching remote content from network. This
is basically reqiured to scan USGCB conten
(3) --datastream-id, --xccdf-id
These are usefull when assising complex SCAP 1.2 DataStreams documents.
These are not immediatelly benefitial as SDS documents with multiple
xccdf-s or datastastreams are not yet common.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
spacewalk-oscap 0.0.10-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Schedule new OpenSCAP scan for machine.
2. Specify some of the new arguments
Actual results:
New command-line options are forbiden. OpenSCAP scan proceeds wihout them

Expected results:
New command-line options are allowed. OpenSCAP scan proceeds with them.

Comment 15 Stephen Herr 2013-03-15 14:00:13 EDT
Bug 922209 has been created as a clone of this RFE to track the release of updated packages for RHEL 5. This bug will track the release of updated packages for RHEL 6.

This update requires openscap-utils >= 0.9.2, which is currently available in RHEL 6 but not RHEL 5.
