The check for Red Hat 6 is pulled from:


Simply change the two references to 'redhat-release' to state 'centos-release' instead. Then rebuild.

That should do it.

Subject: Anyone using rhel6 ssg for centos6?

I have been trying to get oscap working on my CentOS6.5 network core, without luck.

Everything comes back with "Result notapplicable".

I am pretty new to SCAP and XCCDF, but am a long-time user of Nessus and Security Center (prior to ACAS program by DISA).

Does anyone have suggestions where I can find some in depth guidance to adjust the rhel6 configs to CentOS?
