Importing new SCAP packages
SCAP packages can be added to CM at any time.
Before you can import packages into BMC Client Management you need to download them, for example from the [ NVD (National Vulnerability Database) of the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology)|http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/ncp/repository] website.
To import SCAP packages, proceed as follows:
- Click Edit > Import SCAP Package
The Select an SCAP Package window opens on the screen.
- Browse to the directory into which you downloaded the package and select it.
- Click Open .
The imported file (zip or xml) is send to the master, which unzips and parses it. It then creates the new SCAP package in the CM database with its associated components (data streams, benchmarks, profiles, OVAL checks, etc.). The imported files are saved in a subdirectory with the ID of the newly created package as its name, in the data/scap/checklists directory.
If a version 1.2 zip file contains multiple xml files, multiple SCAP packages are created. Each of these SCAP package is given is predefined name.
You can view the package components in the respective tabs and subnodes.
