Compliance Operator in OpenShift fails basic checks even with new installation

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Compliance Operator running CIS report shows vulnerabilities that cannot be easily remediated on Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS (RHCOS).
  • There are no automated remediations available for these vulnerabilities.
  • Since RHCOS is immutable, it would be best to have out-of-the-box remediations.
  • Most of the commands shown in the remediations would only work on RHEL systems; for RHCOS the changes wouldn't be persistent unless done via machine config.
  • Each new OCP version seems to bring new failed tests.


  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4
  • Compliance Operator 0.1.32
