IMO, you should update configuration files of oscap/atomic firstly by running atomic install before scanning container/container images, I assume you have a latest

The following is my testing.

[root@dhcp-2-50 ~]# docker images

[root@dhcp-2-50 ~]# atomic install
docker run --rm --privileged -v /:/host/ sh /root/

Installing the configuration file 'openscap' into /etc/atomic.d/.  You can now use this scanner with atomic scan with the --scanner openscap command-line option.  You can also set 'openscap' as the default scanner in /etc/atomic.conf.  To list the scanners you have configured for your system, use 'atomic scan --list'.

Updating config.ini with latest configuration
Installation complete. You can customize /etc/oscapd/config.ini as needed.

Comment 3 Edward Shen 2017-11-28 16:44:49 UTC
Thanks, Alex. This is a good solution, but seems a bit hack. If I didn't install openscap before, should "atomic scan" help download it and update the config file automatically? So this seems not to be this layered image's issue, might be an atomic issue. I change the component to atomic here, let's discuss whether it's a bug or not.
BTW, I find all the layered images I'm testing based on this same base image have this same issue. These are:

Comment 5 Marek Haicman 2017-11-29 22:27:57 UTC
OK, I have a guess what this is about.

If you do not run `atomic install openscap`, default configuration of openscap-daemon (which is internally used as a middle layer between openscap and atomic) is to download fresh CVE OVAL every time.

As we don't want atomic scan to download stuff from every time scan is performed, `atomic install openscap` changes this behaviour to use bundled CVE. We rebuild openscap container each week with fresh CVE OVAL. So actually by installing openscap, you get a bit older CVE feed, but it's a feature, not a bug.

Hope I shed some light into the issue.
