VMware 6.5 Update 1 Security Configuration Guide

Hi All, does anyone know if / how this can be incorporated into vROPS v6.6.1?

As the settings in the SCG 6.5 U1 seem somewhat different to what's in the included VMware Hardening Guide for policy.

vROPS integration is horribly out of date and does not account for the different security configuration profiles, it assumes that you are using profile version 1. The security configuration guide has 3 profiles and each is more secure than the last. Profile 3 is for everyone, Profile 2 is for folks that need to be much more secure, and Profile 1 is for those working in three-letter-acronym agencies.

Best regards,
