AIX Security reporting tool

Since CIS Tool latest version (v4.x) dropped support for generating AIX security reports based on CIS AIX 7.x benchmark; There is currently NO tool, which would generate decent HTML security reports from AIX systems.

And that is a HUGE gap in security governance on AIX side at the moment.

On Linux side, there is RHEL native Openscap Tool, which is updated all the time on regular basis, and generates awesome reports with remediation scripts / commands included on the found security deviations out-of-the-box.

On AIX side, there is nothing at the moment, only CIS Tool v3.x (which is from year 2020, and out of support) , which generates reports based on CIS AIX 7.1 CIS Benchmark.

Since PowerSC is nowdays "the" Security Tool for AIX systems, please include a Reporting Tool to the program as well.
