“SCAP-On-Apple” Project Launch September 30, 2012

The long wait is over! We are very excited to launch the SCAP-On-Apple Project here on MacOSForge.org simultaneously with the first community gathering at the 8th Annual IT Security Automation Conference in Baltimore, MD - October 3-5, 2012.


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 OSX 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 the community in developing SCAP content and deploying compliant tools for all platforms.
