SecPod SCAP Repo Web Service

It is a REST based web service interface for SCAP Repo. It allows,
- Login/logout
- Fetch SCAP entity metadata
- Fetch SCAP entity XML
- Get SCAP data bundle
- Get SCAP data stream
- Get RSS based alert
- List SCAP Repo profile
- Get profile based SCAP content
- Get Priority List 1 Products CPEs XML or JSON

With these methods, a security scanner can be devised to fetch the security content in an automated fashion. Some of these interfaces require a subscription to the SCAP Repo, while others work over an anonymous binding without authorization. Every subscriber will be provided with a SAML based authorization assertions, which has to be sent part of the HTTP Authorization header of the login interface. The assertion has to be compressed and Base64 encoded so that it is accomodated within the Authorization header.
