OpenSCAP Failures To To OS Version?

CentOS No Comments

Hi – I’m running the OpenSCAP STIG profile on a new CentOS 7.1611 installation, and I get a few failures that look like this (output from openscap scan —verbosity INFO). I suspect this is because the openscap module is not accepting CentOS 7 as RHEL 7 for rules purposes, despite an early check for “Community Enterprise Operating System 7” which succeeds.

1. Am I correct in why it’s failing?
2. Is this a bug, or an accepted behavior given that CentOS isn’t actually RHEL?

Noam
