Use the Systems Audit page to schedule and view compliance scans for a particular system. Scans are performed by the OpenSCAP tool, which implements NIST's standard Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). Before you scan a system, ensure that the SCAP content is prepared and all prerequisites are met.
To display the Systems Audit page, click Systemssystem_nameAudit. List Scans
