(cross posting to open-scap-list since this is of interest to both
communities, and the OpenSCAP guys are in the position to affect change)
This comes up frequently. From a content perspective the NIST 800-53
(+STIG) identifiers are handled in the <ref> tags. It's a matter of
having the tool (e.g. OpenSCAP) place them into the results file. I
recall a thread about this, however couldn't easily find it.
So, for the OpenSCAP guys: within SSG we utilize the <ref> tag to map
additional policy regimes to XCCDF rules. Is there a way to get this
information exposed within result files?
We can add these identifiers to the HTML report. How should it look like?
For example Rule named "umask_for_daemons" contains reference to AC-6.
The output now looks:
Once we include 800-53 references it could look like:
* Security Control ID (NIST SP 800-53): AC-6
Does that look reasonable to you? Do you have better suggestions?
