What can organizations who use RedHat OpenShift via IBM Cloud Paks do to ensure regulatory readiness, or compliance before they deploy into production?

  1. RedHat OpenShift Compliance Operator which gives admins ability to identify compliance issues, identify gaps & remediation options through a compliance scan & report. The primary focus is RHEL OS and OCP and Kubernetes for scanning and monitors at the node level using OpenSCAP-an NIST certified tool.
  • When you first install , there are information & profiles available related to compliance benchmarks that can be accessed through commands:
  • View Available Profiles: oc get -n <namespace> profiles.compliance
  • Details of a Profile: oc get -n <namespace> -oyaml profiles.compliance <profile name>
  • Create a Namespace object YAML file by running: $ oc create -f <file-name>.yaml
  • Create the OperatorGroup object YAML file: $ oc create -f <file-name>.yaml
  • Create the Subscription object YAML file: $ oc create -f <file-name>.yaml
