SCM Reporting = v78
The Security and Management team provides the following command line tools to help you ensure that systems are compliant with security parameters and policies:

For processing SCAP-expressed data stream into Fixlet messages that represent the SCAP policy rules.

For generating an Asset Reporting Format (ARF) output report.
These tools, certified by NIST as SCAP 1.2 compliant, meet Federal requirements to support the automated content generation of commonly accepted security configurations, the scanning and assessment of endpoint systems, and reporting of compliance results. These tools support checklists that are designed for the Windows platform only.
