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) is for Redhat 6:
- SCM Checklist for DISA STIG on RHEL 6 v1 (Action Script based parameterization)
- DISA STIG Checklist for RHEL 6 v1 (In-line parameterization, requires TEM 8.1+)
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.
This content contains security configuration checks that evaluate and, if desired, remediate the security settings of your endpoints according the DISA 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.
In 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 customers):
- BES Support v929
- SCM Reporting v37
