SCAP Security Guide

The scap-security-guide package has been included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 to provide security guidance, baselines, and associated validation mechanisms that use Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). SCAP Security Guide contains the necessary data to perform system security compliance scans regarding prescribed security policy requirements; both a written description and an automated test (probe) are included. By automating the testing, SCAP Security Guide provides a convenient and reliable way to verify system compliance on a regular basis.
