If you do a 'git pull', or simply reclone, you'll notice the new profile
in there. It should make the next RPM release too.
Basically what I'm trying to do is find a good starting-point for
a completely customized profile that calls a particular set of rules I will define. I
think I need to conduct a little more research to make-sure I fully understand how to use
the scripts to generate OVAL content and how to create a profile. I think I have the rule
creation/adding part down. Can you point me in the right direction?
As always thank you for the assistance!
Consider exploring the XCCDF
"extends" option, as used in the STIG:
The STIG inherits *everything* from the common profile, located here:
Once inherited, anything in the STIG profile takes precedence, allowing
for customization of things like password lengh, audit retention, etc.
If you wanted to change a refine value, such as maximum age of
passwords, simply use a refine-value tag:
... which would change the value from the STIG (which is 180 days), to 5
in your custom profile
Or perhaps there's a STIG rule which you disagree with, disable it via
the selected operator:
