Detailed Description

Policy interface to Extensible Configuration Checklist Description Format.

Purpose of this layer is to separate the transport syntax of the XCCDF XML from the processes of evaluating and scoring the policy content comprised by the XCCDF documents. XCCDF Policy model performs the loading, evaluation and scoring tasks of XCCDF.

Typedef Documentation

typedef xccdf_test_result_type_t(* xccdf_policy_engine_eval_fn)(struct xccdf_policy *policy, const char *rule_id, const char *definition_id, const char *href_if, struct xccdf_value_binding_iterator *value_binding_it, struct xccdf_check_import_iterator *check_imports_it, void *user_data)

Type of function which implements OpenSCAP checking engine.

This function defines basic interface between XCCDF module and thee checking engine. For each checking engine required for evaluation there should be at least one such function registerd. The registered function is then used by xccdf_policy module to perform evaluation on the machine.

typedef void*(* xccdf_policy_engine_query_fn)(void *, xccdf_policy_engine_query_t, void *)

Type of function which implements queries defined within xccdf_policy_engine_query_t.

Each checking engine may register its own function of the xccdf_policy_engine_query_fn type. The registered function is then used by xccdf_policy module to acquire comprehensive info about the checking-engine itself or the data fed in. First argument of the function is always user data as registered. Second argument defines the query. Third argument is dependent on query and defined as follows:

  • (const char *)href – for POLICY_ENGINE_QUERY_NAMES_FOR_HREF

Expected return type depends also on query as follows:

  • (struct oscap_stringlists *) – for POLICY_ENGINE_QUERY_NAMES_FOR_HREF
  • NULL shall be returned if the function doesn't understand the query.

Enumeration Type Documentation

Type of a query over checking-engine data.

This allows xccdf_policy module to query checking engine and acquire comprehensive info.

OSCAP_API struct oscap_stringlist* xccdf_item_get_files ( struct xccdf_item item)

Return names of files that are used in checks of particular rules.

Every check needs this file to be evaluated properly. If this file will not be imported and bind to the XCCDF Policy system the result of rule after evaluation will be "Not checked"

OSCAP_API struct oscap_file_entry_list* xccdf_item_get_systems_and_files ( struct xccdf_item item)

Return names of files that are used in checks of particular rules.

Every check needs this file to be evaluated properly. If this file will not be imported and bind to the XCCDF Policy system the result of rule after evaluation will be "Not checked"

The resulting list should be freed with oscap_filelist_free.

OSCAP_API bool xccdf_policy_add_select ( struct xccdf_policy ,

Example
Before each policy evaluation user has to register callback that will be called for each check. Every checking engine must have registered callback or the particular check will be skipped. In the code below is used the predefined function oval_agent_eval_rule for evaluation OVAL checks:
* xccdf_policy_model_register_engine_oval(policy_mode, agent_session)
*
If you use this predefined OVAL callback, user data structure (last parameter of register function) MUST be of type oval_agent_session_t:

Note
The policy model will take ownership of given benchmark and free it when it's being destructed!
OSCAP_API bool xccdf_policy_model_register_engine_and_query_callback ( struct xccdf_policy_model model,
char *  sys,
xccdf_policy_engine_eval_fn  eval_fn,
void *  usr,
xccdf_policy_engine_query_fn  query_fn 
)

Function to register callback for checking system.

Parameters
modelXCCDF Policy Model
sysString representing given checking system
eval_fnCallback - pointer to function called by XCCDF Policy system when rule parsed
usroptional parameter for passing user data to callback
query_fn- optional parameter for providing xccdf_policy_engine_query_fn implementation for given system.
Returns
true if callback registered succesfully, false otherwise
OSCAP_API bool xccdf_policy_model_register_output_callback ( struct xccdf_policy_model model,
policy_reporter_output  func,
void *  usr 
)

Function to register output callback for checking system that will be called AFTER each rule evaluation.

Parameters
modelXCCDF Policy Model
funcCallback - pointer to function called by XCCDF Policy system when rule parsed
usroptional parameter for passing user data to callback
Returns
true if callback registered succesfully, false otherwise
OSCAP_API bool xccdf_policy_model_register_start_callback ( struct xccdf_policy_model model,
policy_reporter_start  func,
void *  usr 
)

Function to register start callback for checking system that will be called BEFORE each rule evaluation.

Parameters
modelXCCDF Policy Model
funcCallback - pointer to function called by XCCDF Policy system when rule parsed
usroptional parameter for passing user data to callback
Returns
true if callback registered succesfully, false otherwise
OSCAP_API bool xccdf_policy_model_set_tailoring ( struct xccdf_policy_model model,
struct xccdf_tailoring tailoring 
)

Sets the Tailoring element to use in the policy.

Profiles from the Benchmark may be shadowed by profiles in the given Tailoring element! Calling this function will affect the results of xccdf_policy_model_get_policy_by_id calls.

This does INVALIDATE preexisting xccdf_policy pointers in this xccdf_policy_model! It is recommended to call this function before policy for any profile is queried.

Note
The policy model will take ownership of given tailoring and free it when it's being destructed or when new tailoring is being set.
OSCAP_API struct xccdf_policy * xccdf_policy_new ( struct xccdf_policy_model model,
struct xccdf_profile profile 
)

Constructor of Policy structure.

Parameters
modelPolicy model
profileProfile from XCCDF Benchmark
OSCAP_API int xccdf_policy_recalculate_score ( struct xccdf_policy policy,
struct xccdf_result test_result 
)

Recalculate score of the XCCDF Benchmark.

Parameters
policyXCCDF Policy
test_resultTest Result model
Returns
zero on success
OSCAP_API bool xccdf_policy_resolve ( struct xccdf_policy policy)

Resolve benchmark by applying all refine_rules and refine_values to rules / values of benchmark.

All properties in benchmark will be irreversible changed and user has to load benchmark (from XML) again to discard these changes.

Parameters
policyXCCDF policy containing rules/values that will be applied to benchmark rules/values.
Returns
true if process ends succesfuly or false in case of error
OSCAP_API char* xccdf_policy_substitute ( const char *  text,
struct xccdf_policy policy 
)

Perform textual substitution of cdf:sub elements with respect to given XCCDF policy.

Parameters
texttext to be substituted
policypolicy to be used
OSCAP_API xccdf_test_result_type_t xccdf_test_result_resolve_and_operation ( xccdf_test_result_type_t  A,
xccdf_test_result_type_t  B 
)

Return result of the AND operation for two given attributes.

For more details about the attributes A and B please consult 'Table 26: Possible Results for a Single Test' from NISTIR-7275r4. For more details about the AND operation please consult 'Table 12: Truth Table for AND' in the very same document.
