Over the past few months there has been a good bit of off-list chatting
about hosting a hack session/meetup for the SSG. With the recent DISA
publication of the draft STIG the timing seems right.
So, would anyone be interested in meeting up where we could do things like:
- Share knowledge on the installation of SSG. How do I run a scan?
How do I customize settings? How do I get a report that I can show my
ISSE/ISSM? How do I generate a Certification Test Plan, based off my
- Go a bit deeper, and understand how the code works. What is
XCCDF? OVAL? OCIL? How do I add my own custom rules?
- Prep your environment to submit patches back to the SSG. How do I
setup git? How do I create a FedoraHosted account?
- Chat about what additional profiles are needed. How should we
handle CNSSI 12-53? What about PCI compliance?
I'd like to specifically go through the RHEL6 STIG content, performing
scans and generating C&A artifacts. Part of the idea on this would be
attendees could take this setup home and use it to start providing
feedback against the draft STIG.
What do you guys think? Good idea? What topics should be covered?
Jeff and I were chatting, and we'll likely be able to host either at the
Red Hat office in Tysons Corner, VA, or at the IAD Mobility Lab in
Annapolis Junction, MD. And there's nothing saying we wouldn't do two
sessions, one per location.... we can work all that out once
topics/agenda get sorted.
