PowerSTIG

4.3.0

The PowerStig module provides a set of PowerShell classes to access DISA STIG settings extracted from the xccdf. The module provides a unified way to access the parsed STIG data by enabling the concepts of:
1. Exceptions (overriding and auto-documenting)
2. Ignoring a single or entire class of rules (auto-documenting)
3. Organizational settings to address STIG rule
The PowerStig module provides a set of PowerShell classes to access DISA STIG settings extracted from the xccdf. The module provides a unified way to access the parsed STIG data by enabling the concepts of:
1. Exceptions (overriding and auto-documenting)
2. Ignoring a single or entire class of rules (auto-documenting)
3. Organizational settings to address STIG rules that have allowable ranges.

This module is intended to be used by additional automation as a lightweight portable “database” to audit and enforce the parsed STIG data.
