You might want to try the FOS? If you are working under classified conditions (which probably shouldn’t' be in such a public setting), there should be a site that is approved to down load authorized sw for use in those types of environments.

Sure, I used the URL:
Unfortunately, I cannot use git directly from the RHEL6 host I need this on to fedorahosted.org as we're a classified site and strict firewall/proxy rules won't allow me to. I can only use a browser on one unclassified Windows workstation (git not allowed) then transfer my downloads over manually :(
Any other options for me to get the latest?

The .tar.gz of SSG you mentioned is well over 18 months old. Mind sharing where you nabbed it (the link should probably be taken down)?
Are you able to use the latest SSG RPM? Download instructions at:
