Parent article: Fedora and CAPP
Well being close to CAPP/LSPP has a lot of use in various federal government and government contractor systems. While not actually certified.. the fact that it matches compliance easily makes it a lot easier to have a Fedora system than Debian, etc.
Does CAPP/LSPP/RBAC actually really do much beyond making sure your paperwork is easier to fill out? Not really. It does give you a known quantity to work from when you are 'auditing' for. And it allowed me to have Fedora on a network to show that Linux had newer items than RHEL-4 since I couldn't get Debian, etc without a lot of ground up checks.
