Latest reply on Mar 3, 2020 by adamc

Where is there additional documentation on resolving policy compliance tests which details a "golden ratio" or "PI" value result finding?

 

The provided details do not provide enough context to resolve. These findings were on a RHEL 7 server.

 

PI Example:

 

The following List string value(s) of <B>X</B> indicate the installation status of the '<B>dracut-fips</B>' package on the host.

X=314159265358979

NOTE: This Qualys "special value", the first 15 digits of PI, is used to report specific status conditions within Qualys Policy Compliance. The conditions vary by technology and configuration; however, common conditions include:

1. Registry key path was not found
2. Registry key parameter was not found
3. File was not found
4. Setting was not found

Please consult Qualys Policy Compliance documentation for additional information.

 

Golden Ratio Example:

 

The following List String value(s) of <B>X</B> indicate the status of <B>fips</B> option defined in '<B>/boot/grub2/grub.cfg</B>' file

X=161803399999999

NOTE: This Qualys "special value", the first 15 digits of the "Golden Ratio", is used to report specific status conditions within Qualys Policy Compliance. The conditions vary by technology and configuration; however, common conditions include:

1. Registry key path was not found
2. Registry key parameter was not found
