 SCM Reporting = v78

   The Security and Management team provides the following command line
   tools to help you ensure that systems are compliant with security
   parameters and policies:
      ·	SCAP 1.2 Import tool (scap2.exe)
         For processing SCAP-expressed data stream into Fixlet messages
         that represent the SCAP policy rules.
      ·	SCAP 1.2 Report tool (scap_results.exe)
         For generating an Asset Reporting Format (ARF) output report.

   These tools, certified by NIST as SCAP 1.2 compliant, meet Federal
   requirements to support the automated content generation of commonly
   accepted security configurations,  the scanning and assessment of
   endpoint systems, and reporting of compliance results.  These tools
