SCAP Specifications

SCAP must continually evolve to meet the ever changing needs of the community. This need for continual evolution results in multiple versions of SCAP being available at any given time. The SCAP Release Cycle defines a process for managing change relating to SCAP and the NIST SCAP Validation Program by providing a consistent and repeatable revision work flow.

The following list represents the currently available versions of SCAP. The current effective version of SCAP is 1.3.
