Hello Security and Compliance Community!
IBM is pleased to announce the availability of the new security configuration management checklists for Tivoli Endpoint Manager for Security and Compliance! The new checklists based on guidance provided by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA – US DoD) and the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) are:
- SCM Checklist for DISA STIG on SUSE 9 (Action Script based parameterization)
- SCM Checklist for DISA STIG on SUSE 11 (Action Script based parameterization)
- DISA STIG Checklist for SUSE 9 (In-line parameterization, requires TEM 8.1+)

* Please note:
For Unix - The “Action Script based” parameterization model, each security control has a corresponding Fixlet Task that can be used to alter the check’s parameters. In the “In-line” parameterization model, each security control contains the parameterization settings in a form directly on the Fixlet Description tab. For Unix Fixlets, the In-line model requires TEM 8.1 and later.
For FDCC - The existing sites with the naming pattern “SCM Checklist for FDCC…” are now superseded by the new sites (“FDCC Checklist…”), but will be supported for some time. The new FDCC sites provide additional functionality such as parameterization, parameterized remediation, and measured value analyses.
This content contains security configuration checks that evaluate and, if desired, remediate the security settings of your endpoints according the DISA or FDCC standards. As with most of the existing SCM content in the Tivoli Endpoint Manager for Security and Compliance library, most checks include a corresponding analysis property to report actual values (not just pass/fail), and most checks have a parameterized setting enabling simple customization for compliance evaluation and remediation.
addition to the new sites, the following existing sites have been updated to be
compatible with the new content (site versions included for air-gap
- BES Support v824
- SCM Reporting v31
