1 Endpoint Security Considerations
2 Agenda Open Networks PROs & CONs Challenges Alternatives
3 Open Networks are … Open P2P applications Wireless Net Meeting Instant Messenger Internet access Outsourcing Wireless Partners/Consultants Telecommuting Traveling Employees Website access InsideOutside PERIMETER
4 Information Security Challenges Know When you are Finished ? Missing protection Security investment not at work Misconfiguration Solve ‘solved’ problems again and again Misuse/Misbehavior Tradeoff Protection for productivity Missing in actionChasing the unknown What to do?...

16 Trusted Computing Group Standards TCG –a thought leading organization working together to help enterprises ensure a trusted computing environment Trusted Network Connect Sub-Group is creating a standard for interoperability to prevent untrustworthy devices from connecting to enterprise networks. Leverage existing standards – current consideration -IEEE 802.1x protocol and the IETF EAP RFC 3748 protocol for host access negotiation with network devices. -RADIUS [RFC 2865] for making access verification decisions and defining network access privileges. Ability to leverage the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) microchip for hardware based level of assurance.
