IBM BigFix Compliance PCI Add-on
Security Configuration Management (SCM)

IBM is pleased to announce the availability of the new security
configuration management checklists for IBM BigFix Compliance PCI Add-on.
The new checklist that is based on the guidance provided by the Payment
Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is called PCI DSS Checklist
for AIX 7.

This content contains security configuration checks that evaluate the
security settings of your AIX 7.1 endpoints according to the PCI DSS
standard. As with most of the existing SCM content in the IBM BigFix
Compliance PCI Add-on library, checks include a corresponding analysis
property to report actual values, as well as steps for manual remediation
in the check description.

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.
