SlangUpdated Aug 30, 2023
Slang is a shorthand language for Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) in Yet Another Markup Language (YAML). Slang is used to quickly create standards-based security automation content without reading the SCAP or learning to write Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language (OVAL) or Extensible Configuration Checklist Description Format (XCCDF).
Using the Slang Authoring Toolkit, you can convert your Slang to SCAP that can be run in any standards-compliant assessment engine.
Use the Slang Authoring Toolkit to:
- Scaffold Slang projects.
- Integrate with Visual Studio Code (VS Code) to provide content-sensitive Slang authoring help.
- Validate your Slang.
- Test your Slang by scanning devices locally or over the network.
- Export your Slang to SCAP 1.2 data streams or OVAL Definitions files.
- Import valid SCAP content, and convert it to a Slang project.
