OpenSCAP is a set of open source libraries providing an easier path
for integration of the SCAP line of standards. SCAP is a line of
standards managed by NIST with the goal of providing a standard language
for the expression of Computer Network Defense related information.
The intended scope of this project is to implement working interface
wrappers for parsing and querying SCAP content including:
* Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE)
* Common Configuration Enumeration (CCE)
* Common Platform Enumeration (CPE)
* Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
* Extensible Configuration Checklist Description Format (XCCDF)
* Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL)
This package contains the Python bindings for OpenSCAP.
