SCAP Workbench

A GUI tool that provides scanning, tailoring and validation functionality for SCAP content

About

SCAP Workbench is a GUI tool that provides scanning, tailoring and validation functionality for SCAP content. It uses openscap library to access SCAP functionalities.

Homepage of the project is https://www.open-scap.org/tools/scap-workbench/

How to run it out of the box

  1. Make sure you have installed all prerequisites

required dependencies:

# yum install cmake gcc-c++ openssh-clients util-linux openscap-devel qt5-qtbase-devel qt5-qtxmlpatterns-devel openssh-askpass

required dependencies (only for the git repo, not required for released tarballs):

# yum install asciidoc

optional dependencies:

# yum install polkit

On Ubuntu this is roughly equivalent to:

# apt install build-essential openssh-client libopenscap-dev libqt5xmlpatterns5-dev ssh-askpass
# apt install asciidoc
# apt install libpolkit-agent-1-0
  1. Build SCAP Workbench:
$ mkdir build; cd build
$ cmake ../
$ make

To build against locally built OpenSCAP library export following variables:

$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/PATH/TO/DIR/WITH/.pcFILE/"
$ export LIBRARY_PATH=/PATH/TO/DIR/WITH/openscap.soFILE/

Additionally it is possible to use custom CMake definitions instead of exporting environment variables:

$ cmake -DOPENSCAP_LIBRARIES:PATH=/local/openscap.so/filepath/ \
    -DOPENSCAP_INCLUDE_DIRS:PATH=/local/openscap/include/path \
    -DOPENSCAP_VERSION:STRING="X.Y.Z" \
    ../
$ make
  1. Install SCAP Workbench: (optional)

(inside the build folder):

$ # may require superuser privileges if you didn't set different installation
$ # prefix (CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX)
$ make install

4a) Run SCAP Workbench: (if it was installed)

spawning open file dialog:

$ scap-workbench

with an XCCDF file to load:

$ scap-workbench /path/to/xccdf-file.xml

with a source datastream (SDS) to load:

$ scap-workbench /path/to/sds-file

4b) Run SCAP Workbench: (straight from build dir, without installation)

Note: If you have built SCAP-Workbench against locally built OpenSCAP library, then run one of the following commands:

$ ldconfig /PATH/TO/DIR/WITH/openscap.soFILE/

or

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/PATH/TO/DIR/WITH/openscap.soFILE/

and then:

$ cd build/
$ bash runwrapper.sh ./scap-workbench

What now?

You should have a built SCAP Workbench executable by now. Please refer to the user manual for documentation on how to use it.

There are 3 ways to get the user manual:

  • Click Help -> User Manual in the application
  • Open /usr/share/doc/scap-workbench/user_manual.html (installed system-wide) or doc/user_manual.html (from the tarball) in your browser
  • Open or download user manual from the website

How to make a tarball

$ mkdir build; cd build
$ cmake ../
$ make package_source
