Subject: RE: VMs, containers vs. bare-metal machines in SSG
Have you considered the CPE Applicability Language (NISTIR 7698)? It
facilitates this without overloading CPE IDs.
Yeah, we'd use CPE applicability - a CPE name and its CPE OVAL definition.
That will get us the best compatibility with various SCAP scanners out there.
What I meant by "fake" is that docker or vm-storage are not architectures,
they are not even OSes, they don't fit well in the CPE ID schemes.
