Managing compliance with OpenSCAP

Managing compliance with OpenSCAP

Enterprise computing environments may consist of hundreds or thousands of interconnected computer systems, running numerous applications and services, and accessed by a large and diverse set of users and applications. To maintain control over the security of this vast environment, a standard way to scan systems for compliance with security policies is needed.

In this webinar, we’ll show how to use Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® tools based on SCAP to retain control over your large IT environment, to scan systems for compliance with the desired security policy, and use the scan results combined with the power of Ansible® to remediate all detected problems. We’ll cover how to:

  • Install and use the SCAP Security Guide.
  • Evaluate a server's compliance with the requirements specified by a policy from the SCAP Security Guide using OpenSCAP tools.
  • Create a tailoring file to adjust the policy's security checks so that they’re relevant and correct for a specific system and its use case. 
  • Run Ansible Playbooks, included in the SCAP Security Guide, to remediate compliance checks that failed an OpenSCAP scan.
