- Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language -
- Schema: Apache System Characteristics
- Version: 5.11:5.11
- Release Date: 12/18/2014 09:00:00 AM
Deprecated As Of Version: 5.8
Reason: The httpd_item does not specify how to detect instances of httpd and cannot be reasonably specified to allow for products
to detect all instances of httpd across platforms, packaging systems, and typical user compiled and configured installations.
Without a proper definition of how to identify instances of httpd products will not reliably produce consistent assessment
results because they will naturally utilize different approaches to locating instances of httpd which will lead to differences
in the set of collected instances of https.
Comment: This item has been deprecated and may be removed in a future version of the language.
The httpd item holds information about a installed Apache HTTPD binary. It extends the standard ItemType as defined in the
oval-system-characteristics schema and one should refer to the ItemType description for more information.
