Hi Marek, Thank you for quick response.
I want to use one particular profile, not all of them, and not "any" of them but I want to list all the available profiles available on machine and then select one of them, so was looking for a option. Using $ oscap info or $ oscap info --profiles gives error stating some-file.xml is required. As per oscap man page, info requires any-scap-file.xml but I was looking for option to list all the profiles without specifying the any-scap-file.xml file.

I have just checked, and there is no scap-security-guide rpm for RHEL 6.5. Package was first shipped in RHEL6.6, and in RHEL6.5 there has been openscap-content rpm that had one profile only. For the list of profiles, you can use `oscap info`, (in newest versions of openscap it's even more convenient `oscap info --profiles`. But anyway I would strongly suggest to not automate profile selection. What you want to use is one particular profile, not all of them, and not "any" of them. But maybe there is a use case - can you clarify why do you need to automate profile picking? Marek
