I had provided a comment a while back that I never heard back on.
"I am not sure if it has been mentioned, but I personally would find it useful to
include details on the results.
For instance, considering a check that ensures all libraries meet certain permissions, it
would be useful to identify all entries that are non-compliant, if failed.
The SCC scanner does this, sort of. Well it lists every item verified, which in some cases
can make it difficult to identify just the failed items (needle in the haystack).
In some cases, the simplicity of the result details in OpenSCAP reports are desirable
(management audience). In other cases, the verbosity in the SCC reports are useful
It would be ideal if OpenSCAP could offer both.
More specifically, it would be ideal if an option could be specified when generating the
report to dictate the verbosity of the report details. Or perhaps even a filter within the
report that allows the verbosity to be toggled.
I would consider the following three verbosity levels most useful:
LOW - No details, just the overall outcome for each check (the current OpenSCAP report
MEDIUM - Includes all (and only) failed items for each check that fails.
HIGH - Includes all items verified (both pass and fail items) for every check."
Any thoughts on including this?

Subject: New report and guide in openscap 1.1.0
as you may know I have been working on a complete rewrite of HTML report and guide for the
upcoming openscap 1.1.0 release. It's a feature that will touch almost every user of
openscap. I would like to gather feedback from the scap-security-guide community so that
we can make sure there aren't any blocker issues in the release. It is natural that
there will be small issues that we will iron out in minor releases. Basically we would
just like to make sure the new report and guide aren't missing anything crucial that
would prevent adoption.
for sample HTML report and
guide from SSG for RHEL6.
Looking forward to feedback.
