Subject: WASP for Linux 7?


Is there a WASP for Linux 7? What is the accepted and accredited security scanning app for Linux 7--is it SECSCN?

Thank you,

[NOTE: added linux-audit to the CC line, I should have done that earlier]

I believe I can reproduce this now; I'm seeing slightly different panics, but it is "close enough" and based on some quality time with the code I believe they are both symptoms of the same root cause.

To help verify that I'm heading down the right path, could you share your audit configuration as well? If that's not possible, can you at least confirm that you using a few audit directory watches?

Try Using OpenSCAP. I do not think that RHEL7 has been approved yet and I do not see the rules on NIPR or SIPR.
