8.5. Using OpenSCAP with Red Hat Satellite
When running multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems, it is important to keep all your systems compliant with your security policy and perform security scans and evaluations remotely from one location. This can be achieved by using Red Hat Satellite 5.5 or later with the spacewalk-oscap package installed on your Satellite client. The package is available from the Red Hat Network Tools channel.
This solution supports two methods of performing security compliance scans, viewing and further processing of the scan results. You can either use the
OpenSCAP Satellite Web Interfaceor run commands and scripts from the
Satellite API. For more information about this solution to security compliance, its requirements and capabilities, see the Red Hat Satellite documentation.
