Manipulating Profile Variables for Customization

Postby Nathan_Hale » Mon Mar 29, 2010 12:50 pm

How can I manipulate variables, such as required password length or days to expiration? I'm sure they are in one of the XML files, but I can't find it.

What I'm trying to do is create a profile customized for my organization. Thanks

Hello Mr. Hale,

Please accept my apologies for the delayed response.

In SCAP, variables are typically defined in the XCCDF file. In particular, a profile will specify a "refine-value" like this...

<refine>

The variable is declared like this...

<Value>
<title>Minimum Password Length</title>
<description>The minimum number of characters required for a password</description>
<value>8</value>
<value>8</value>
<value>9</value>
<value>12</value>
</Value>

The 'selector' of the refine-value maps to the 'value selector' of the variable. To change the value, it's best to create a new 'value selector' if the value you desire is not yet listed. Then, change the refine-value to specify the new selector.

I hope this helps, Mr. Hale
