7.8. 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. On Red Hat Satellite 6, the OpenSCAP plug-in and content provides the compliance and vulnerability scanning.
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 Interface or the Satellite API. For more information about this solution to security compliance, its requirements and capabilities, see the following Red Hat Satellite 6 documentation:
On Red Hat Satellite 5.5, install the spacewalk-oscap package on your Satellite client. See OpenSCAP in RHN Satellite in the RHN Satellite 5.5 User Guide for more information.
