You import the SCAP- expressed benchmarks or data stream through the SCAP Benchmarks view of the console. The SCAP data stream must be downloaded from the Web site, http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/ncp/repository before you import them into CCS. On the Web site, ensure that you select the link, SCAP Content - OVAL 5.3 to OVAL 5.10.1 download. The downloaded data stream is a set of XML files that are usually stored in a compressed format. However, CCS does not support import of data stream in a zipped format.
You download the SCAP 1.2 data stream from the Web site, http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/ncp/repository. On the Web site, when you select SCAP Content to download, you can select any version from OVAL 5.3 to OVAL 5.10.1 to download along with the SCAP content. If the data stream already exists in CCS, then you can choose to overwrite the existing definitions.
CCS lets you import the SCAP benchmarks that contain at least one non-abstract profile. SCAP benchmarks with all abstract profiles or with no profiles, are not imported into CCS. During import, if the SCAP benchmark is invalid then a validation error is displayed.
CCS supports import of signed and unsigned SCAP content.
The import of SCAP data stream fails if any rule of the benchmark contains complex checks. For example, if an XCCDF rule contains the element, <xccdf:complex-check>, then you cannot import the benchmark into the SCAP Content system.
To import the SCAP data stream
Go to the Manage > Standards > SCAP Content view of the console.
In the view, for the Content Type drop-down list, select SCAP Benchmarks.
In the taskbar, click Import Data stream.
In the Import Data stream dialog box, select one of the following options and click Browse:
In the Browse for folder dialog box, navigate to the directory where the SCAP data stream is located and click OK.
For SCAP 1.2, the data stream is a single xml file which is imported.
For SCAP 1.0/1.1. the data stream is a folder that contains the benchmark files which are imported.
The maximum allowed file size for the SCAP content import by CCS is 100 MB.
