Please tell me if I am missing something here. OpenSCAP will not currently allow you to run scans locally against a Windows machine.
I have read posts on Experts Exchange that lead me to believe that there might be a workaround to this problem, but it would require OpenSCAP base to be installed. Currently there is no Windows supported download for OpenSCAP base.
Here is my question. Is OpenSCAP posix compliant? Might it be possible to install and run OpenSCAP base on the newer versions of Windows with Unix services enabled?
Just a thought.
