SIMP Console 1.0 Available

Today marks a benchmark for SIMP products as we are excited to announce the availability of SIMP Console 1.0.0.!

The SIMP Console provides insight into your system’s continuous compliance posture and integrates data from the SIMP Compliance Engine to visualize the state of your Puppet-applied module parameters.

Out of the box, SIMP Console includes:

  • Support for ingesting XCCDF(SCAP) results from a number of scanning engines
  • Integration with SIMP Compliance Engine (SCE) to provide puppet oriented context information
  • Reports generated in XLS, HTML, and PDF format
  • Notification system for forwarding results to Email and Slack
  • A client side scanning utility that automates scanning and collection for console feed
  • Integration with AD, LDAP, and Google Authentication
  • Full Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and delegation of privileges by assigning users specific roles on a subset of nodes
  • A fully featured plugin system to access/create notification services, scan types, custom reports, and authentication backends

When upgrading from a previous beta version of the SIMP Console, to 1.0.0, you will have to rm -rf /var/db/simp/simp-console.db if using SQLite, or drop database and create database if using PostgreSQL. Now that 1.0 has been finalized the database compatibility will be maintained between subsequent versions.

Changes from Beta Version 0.20.0

  • Add Notifications subsystem
  • Enable RBAC by default
  • Add cover page to scan reports
  • Add permissions tab and the ability to delegate permission
  • Multiple bugfixes


Feedback can be sent by clicking on the ‘Feedback’ link in the user dropdown, or by direct email.
