IBM Endpoint Manager for Security and Compliance 

Security Configuration Management (SCM)

IBM is pleased to announce the availability of new security configuration 
management checklists for IBM Endpoint Manager for Security and 
Compliance. The new checklists based on guidance provided by the Defense 
Information Systems Agency (DISA – US DoD), are listed below.

New Sites (in-line parameterization model):
DISA STIG Checklist for RHEL 6 - RG03: site version 1

New Sites (action script parameterization model):
SCM Checklist for DISA STIG on RHEL 6 - RG03: site version 1

* Please note:
The "RG03" suffix for the site names represents release groups. We create 
new release groups when the security checklists have changed significantly 
as to not override customers with disruptive changes to their compliance 

*Site versions provided for air-gap customers.

For the “In-line” parameterization model, each security control contains 
the parameterization settings in a form directly on the Fixlet Description 
tab. The In-line model requires TEM 8.1 and later.
This content contains security configuration checks that evaluate and, if 
desired, remediate the security settings of your endpoints according the 
DISA standards. As with most of the existing SCM content in the Tivoli 
Endpoint Manager for Security and Compliance library, most checks include 
a corresponding analysis property to report actual values (not just 
pass/fail), and most checks have a parameterized setting enabling simple 
customization for compliance evaluation and remediation.
All customers that currently license the Tivoli Endpoint Manager for 
Security and Compliance product, the BigFix SCMv3 solution module, the 
BigFix SCVM solution pack, or the BigFix SLM+SCVM solution bundle are 
entitled to the new content. If you are using BES 8.0 or Tivoli Endpoint 
Manager 8.1 and you are entitled to the new content, you may use the 
License Overview dashboard to enable and gather the sites. If you are 
running BES 7.x and you are currently licensed for Tivoli Endpoint Manager 
for Security and Compliance, BigFix SCVM, BigFix SLM+SCVM, or BigFix SCM 
v3, please contact ibmtemlicensing at lotus.com for access to the new 

Please contact IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Technical Support if you have 
any questions regarding this release.

We hope you find this latest release of SCM content useful and effective. 
Thank you!
