Red Hat News has started a series of blog posts leading up to the Fedora 14
"Laughlin" release highlighting some of the new features. The first

It provides a standardized approach to maintaining the security of systems, such as automatically verifying the presence of patches, checking system security configuration settings, and examining systems for signs of compromise. With OpenSCAP, the open source community is leveraging many different components from the security standards ecosystem.
