Should I be talking with DISA FSO or have I missed something in the Wiki or blogs?
It's not well documented =/
DISA creates their own identification scheme outside of industry CCEs.
These are the RHEL-06-* identifiers you mention. They come from the
ownerid="RHEL-06-000004" disa="137" severity="low">
<VMSinfo VKey="38467" SVKey="50267"
<title>The system must use a separate file system for
the system audit data path.</title>
This will take the partition_for_var_log_audit rule and
RHEL-06-000004 into its metadata.
As DISA gets closer to releasing the RHEL7 STIG, we'll update these
mappings for RHEL7 content (as by that time, DISA will have finalized
their RHEL-07-* numbering schemes).
DISA RHEL-7 Draft STIG references to
"SRG-OS-000001-GPOS-00001" are new to me...Is this a new form of unified
references? Somehow cross-referenced to "CCI"? I need some guidance here, or is
it still being sorted out?
I really don't know how to phrase this question intelligently....can someone help me
You're not crazy. The SRG system is broken and going away. Until SRG
dies, the system goes something like this:
Step 1: DISA attempts to interpret NIST 800-53 and selects controls they
feel are relevant for an operating system. From this, they create high
level requirements in the form of "General Purpose Operating System
Security Requirements Guide," or GPOS SRG. This is where the
SRG-OS-######-GPOS-##### numbers come from. The GPOS SRG is generic,
applicable to RHEL, Windows, OSX, etc. An example could be "Audit
Privileged User Actions." Outside of DISA, these numbers are entirely
Step 2: Once DISA has the high-level requirements, they create
product-specific configuration guidance. This is where RHEL-07-######
numbers come from. "Audit Privileged User Actions" might mean adding 10+
audit rules for Linux, so we'd have RHEL-07-000000 through
RHEL-07-000010 mapped back to a single SRG-OS-GPS identifier. When RHEL
deployments attest to STIG compliance, they must show conformance to
Step 3: Once the RHEL-07-###### controls and naming schema is finalized,
we map them into the stig_overlay file. This will bind the DISA
identifiers into OpenSCAP XCCDF content. End result being DISA
identifiers show up in OpenSCAP HTML and CLI reports, looking something
