This talk covers the background and technologies used in the development of the Open Source System Integrity Management Platform (SIMP). The project is designed for automating operational compliance of Red Hat and CentOS-based systems with DoD, Federal, and Commercial regulations including, but not limited to, NIST 800-53, DISA STIGs, and PCI-DSS. Originally released as Open Source by the National Security Agency, the SIMP community is working toward an extendable platform that can help public and private systems meet regulatory requirements.
