OpenSCAP Test Day – Thursday 2010-08-26

An OpenSCAP Test Day is coming up tomorrow – Thursday 26th August:

OpenSCAP is a tool for maintaining the security of systems, such as automatically verifying the presence of patches, checking system security configuration settings, and examining systems for signs of compromise. It is accepted as a feature for the upcoming Fedora 14 [1].

Security controls that are recommended by DISA[2] and NSA[3] for RHEL5 Desktop systems were migrated into Fedora and stored in SCAP content. Tools capable of handling with such a content are delivered too. So if this sounds interesting to you, now is the best time to give it a try! 🙂

Test instructions are easy to follow, you just go a few test cases and fill the results into a matrix. OpenSCAP developers are available for support and inquiries on an IRC channel.

The Test Day runs from 9:00 to 17:00 UTC [4] in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.
Hope to see you there!
