We have 2008 content in development right now.
However, if you want to get 2008 audits right away, you can use the i2a tool
from our support portal and convert any .inf policy file for 2008 into a Nessus
.audit file. It won't have rich content like the SCAP policies, but you will
be able to quickly audit for these required or suggested settings.
There are .inf hardening files for 2008 available from DISA and Microsoft at
(note - to get the Microsoft .inf hardening files for 2008, you need to install
their GPO Accelerator)
