To meet the US Gov's requirements, profiles like the STIG should
check for *both* on-disk and runtime settings, though through different
I'm not convinced that XCCDF/OVAL is the right choice for general
work. So far the skills to use it don't seem to be common in the
people who need to get work done. However, I do agree that on-disk and
run time settings should be checked. It is too easy to modify
something outside an expected init file. Since we can't expect the
STIG writers to know everything I'm happy with looking for the intent
and following through on that.
