SCAP on Apple


The SCAP on Apple open source project engages and empowers the SCAP community to strengthen the awareness, knowledge and collaboration on SCAP content, tools and solutions with authoritative data for the Apple platforms (macOS and iOS).


Managing patches and secure configurations of a large number of enterprise systems, while ensuring each one is compliant with security requirements, has become a daunting task for IT. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is leading the charge in defining the standards, developing the specifications, and guiding vendors in developing SCAP content and deploying compliant tools for all platforms.


This project’s goal is to augment the existing SCAP community efforts by focusing exclusively on relevant information for macOS and iOS. To facilitate the SCAP community, the project will provide the following services:

  • Web site for information & documentation
  • Blog for timely announcements and updates
  • Source repository for source repository hosting and versioning
  • Downloads for profiles, feeds, installers, etc.
  • Mailing lists for community sharing
  • Issue tracker for defects and enhancement submission and tracking

Bug / Enhancement Ticket System

The project team encourages all participants to fully utilize the issue tracker to identify, submit, and track defects and enhancement requests against all content (web site, documentation, tools, source code, etc.) maintained by this project.
