ABSTRACT

Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language [website]   [open html - 0B]

"Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL) is an international, information security community baseline standard for how to check for the presence of vulnerabilities and configuration issues on computer systems. OVAL standardizes the three main steps of the process with an OVAL System Characteristics Schema for collecting configuration data from systems for testing; OVAL Definitions to test for the presence of specific vulnerabilities, configuration issues, and/or patches; and an OVAL Results Schema for reporting the results from the evaluated systems."
