Review Action Items
Joe Murdock will add NAP protocol information to document and
update the conformance section.
Randy Turner will try to find other contacts that would be willing
to work with the PWG to help deploy NEA health assessment.
(Juniper, Symantec, Cisco are suggested candidates.) Is someone willing to
sit down with the PWG and “have discussions”?
Questions for Microsoft.
1. The NAP spec states UTF-8 string encoding and TLV elements.
There is also a statement about strings being NULL terminated. We believe
the NULL terminator was inadvertently added since it is not
required for TLV elements. That is, do we really need NULL
2. Is it Microsoft's current and future desire/intent/direction
for strings to be UTF-8 encoded?
3. Is Microsoft planning any type of interoperability between NAP
and Network Endpoint Assessment (NEA) from the TNC? Maybe a gateway?
4. What happens when a device passes assessment under one
mechanism but then is challenged again? For example, first over 802.1x to
attach and then DHCP to receive an address. Do we need to start
the assessment again from scratch or is there a shortcut?
5. It looks like most, if not all, of the evaluation attributes
will be extensions to NAP. The only NAP attribute that may be applicable
is the Product Name. Is it appropriate for the PWG to use Product
Name or should we define all our attributes as extensions?
6. How can we get the extended PWG attributes to be recognized by
the Microsoft validator/assessor? Is this a plug-in supplied by a third
party? If this is an industry supported solution, would
Microsoft be willing to supply any required plug-in?
7. Just to make sure we understand it, the PWG members would
really like someone familiar with NAP to profile how it would
operate with print devices. Would this be possible?
Next F2F: December 3-5, Hosted by Samsung.
Next CC: November 20 (13th ???)
