NIST invites comments on two draft publications on the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). The first is Special Publication (SP) 800-126 Revision 3, The Technical Specification for the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP): SCAP Version 1.3. The second is SP 800-126A, SCAP 1.3 Component Specification Version Updates: An Annex to NIST Special Publication 800-126 Revision 3.
SP 800-126 Revision 3 and SP 800-126A collectively define the proposed technical specification for SCAP version 1.3, which is based on enhancements and clarifications to the SCAP 1.2 specification. SP 800-126A is a new publication that allows SCAP 1.3 to take advantage of selected minor version updates of SCAP component specifications, as well as designated Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL) platform schema versions.
