Hi - apparently there is some amount of vendor support for SLES 11, and I hear 12 is coming - for STIG / SCAPs. These define sets of tests to run against the OS for configuration mainly to asses security of the system. This is implemented through XCCDF and OVAL xml files.
Here are a few examples:
SLES11 for System Z: https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/ncp/repository/checklistDetail?id=407 (not that this is an incomplete fileset, seems to be missing DPMS_XCCDF_Benchmark_SuSe zLinux.xml). I’ve emailed the point of contact about this, and they said it’s coming from the vendor and they don’t know anything otherwise.
RHEL7 is going under draft and mainly being worked on here: https://github.com/OpenSCAP/scap-security-guide
I’m wondering if anyone at Novel is in the know on these files or if it’s something that slipped by the wayside. They’re basically a requirement for DoD usage of SUSE.
