Hi Marek,

Thanks for your reply.

I'm using the RHEL7 xccdf that is shipped with scap security guide. So based on 
your reply it looks like, these XCCDF xmls which are part of ssg will not have 
CVE linked.

In that case, can you please guide me the location from where I can get the 
required xmls for evaluating all platforms supported by OSCAP?

Also, is the command going to be similar to xccdf, right now I'm using below 
two commands,

oscap xccdf eval --profile <profile_name> --results <result_xml> --progress 

oscap xccdf eval --remediate --profile <profile_name> --tailoring-file 
<tailoring_file> --results <result_xml> --progress <xccdf_xml>

Will the command remain same for oval as well, except for changing "oscap xccdf 
eval" to "oscap oval eval"? Please clarify.

Hello Bharath,

what xccdf xmls are you using? In case you target RHEL, then CVE 
vulnerabilities are detected using content downloaded from 
  and scanned using `oscap oval eval`. Content shipped in SCAP Security Guide 
is configuration guidance which is different approach to security. Thus no CVE 
information is linked.

In case you consume CVE content for different platforms, it's up to them to 
produce it with proper metadata.

Hope it helps,
