Abstract
G2 proposes to develop an intuitive, interactive SCAP content creation and editing utility that will provide a user-friendly operating environment. The promise of security automation offers the opportunity for great advances in software assurance, security governance/reporting, and ongoing monitoring activities. Hindering that promise is the fact that current data exchange protocols are cumbersome and complex, based on effective but difficult XML checklists, complicated definitions calling intricate tests from multiple repositories through evolving languages. The proposed product will include a local application supported by a database repository housing existing SCAP content, supporting a web-based interface where practical.
