Description

LSAC(v2)
OpenSCAP is an open source project, which enables integration of the SCAP line of standards. Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) is a line of standards managed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It was created to provide a standardized approach to maintaining the security of enterprise systems, such as automatically verifying presence of patches, checking system security configuration settings, and examining systems for signs of compromise. The openscap packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.0.8, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Namely, the new version provides an authenticated scanner that meets the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) SCAP 1.2 certification requirements. (BZ#1013458) Users of openscap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
