Abstract
The current testing methods of the NIST Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) Validation Program are largely manual and labor-intensive, making comprehensive validation of SCAP-enabled IT security products difficult and time-consuming. ATC-NY will design and develop the Automated SCAP Tool Validator (ASTV) for use with the SCAP Public Validation Test Suite and others. ASTV automates the configuration of test systems, execution of test case content, and comparison of tool output to expected results. ASTV will provide a graphical front end and an API to ease integration with existing test workflows. By running multiple test cases concurrently in a distributed or cloud-based ASTV installation, thorough validation of SCAP tools will be dramatically faster than currently possible.
