RuxSeed v. 1.0 Released: A Ruby Open Source XCCDF Loader
I am happy to announce that ruxseed v. 1.0 is now available on SourceForge. Ruxseed processes XCCDF documents used for SCAP (NIST Security Content Automation Protocol) checklists. It performs benchmark resolution, i.e., the 6 “Loading” steps. Given an XCCDF document, it returns a resolved benchmark in the form of an ReXML tree. The project also contains a number of tests that might be useful to someone developing an XCCDF product.
This release enables work on more complex XCCDF processing, such as tailoring and compliance checking. If you would be interested in that functionality, and are willing to test or contribute code or test cases, please contact me.
