    I use PowerSC automatically for securing LPAR AIX, but openscap and much more powerful and customizable. We see that there is not much effort in the development of PowerSC please port OpenScap to have only one security solution for AIX and RHEL

    We have looked OpenSCAP for AIX and found there are many dependencies those needs to be ported on AIX to support OpenSCAP on AIX.
    There are some Linux specific features also for those either we need to find an AIX specific solution or will have to drop those features.
