  Description     : Oval Intreperter

The OVAL Interpreter is a freely available reference implementation that demonstrates the evaluation of OVAL Definitions. Based on a set of Definitions the Interpreter collects system information, evaluates it, and generates a detailed OVAL Results file. It has been developed to demonstrate the usability of OVAL Definitions and to ensure correct syntax and adherence to the OVAL Schemas by definition writers.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the OVAL Interpreter is not an enterprise scanning tool; it is a simplistic, command-line interface that has the ability to execute OVAL Content on an end system.

ovaldi was previously listed in debian packages but was removed. I have simply taken the upstream source, cleaned it, prepared it for debian, and packaged it.

Oval has fully transitioned over to the Center for Internet Security
from MITRE. As such, they have seemingly stopped providing updates to
the oval interpreter. Because of this, I no longer intend to work on
this. A recommended alternative is to use the OpenScap set of tools.
