IBM BigFix Compliance 
Security Configuration Management (SCM)

IBM is pleased to announce the availability of the new security 
configuration management checklists for IBM BigFix Compliance (formerly 
known as IBM Endpoint Manager for Security and Compliance). 
The new checklists that are based on the guidance provided by the Payment 
Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) are:

Site Name
Site Version
PCI DSS Checklist for RHEL 5
PCI DSS Checklist for RHEL 6
PCI DSS Checklist for RHEL 7
PCI DSS Checklist for Windows Embedded POSReady 7
PCI DSS Checklist for Windows Embedded Standard 7
*Site versions are provided for air-gap customers.

This content contains security configuration checks that evaluate the 
security settings of your endpoints according to the PCI DSS standard. As 
with most of the existing SCM content in the IBM BigFix Compliance 
library, most checks include a corresponding analysis property to report 
actual values, as well as steps for manual remediation in the check 

Some of the checks allow you to use the parameterized setting to enable 
customization for compliance evaluation. Note that parameterization 
requires the creation of a custom site. 

If you were involved in the Early Access Program for PCI DSS Security and 
Compliance, unsubscribe from the beta sites to avoid any conflicting 
issues with the production sites. If you do not unsubscribe from the beta 
sites, the content in the production sites will fail.
If you are entitled to the new content and you are using IBM BigFix 
version 9.0 and later, you can use the License Overview dashboard to 
enable and gather the sites. 
If you are currently licensed for the IBM BigFix Compliance, the BigFix 
SCMv3 solution module, the BigFix SCVM solution pack, or the BigFix 
SLM+SCVM solution bundle, contact your IBM sales representative on how to 
get access to the new content.

We hope you find this latest release of SCM content useful. Thank you!
  -- The IBM BigFix Compliance team
