Critical Updates

To provide increased flexibility for the future, DISA has updated the systems that produce STIGs and SRGs. This has resulted in a modification to Group and Rule IDs (Vul and Subvul IDs).

Test STIGs and test benchmarks were published from March through October 2020 to invite feedback. New and updated STIGs are now being published with the modified content.

New releases of STIGs published prior to this change will include the “legacy” Group and Rule IDs as XCCDF ident elements.

For all questions related to STIG content, please contact the DISA STIG Customer Support Desk at
