Hi Ron,
Looks good, but I would tone down the "We Need More Participants!"
Maybe just state that we encourage more participants, and welcome anyone
that is interested.
And the link to the Participants wiki page needs to be changed or
eliminated.  Currently, it points to the PDM group page.

	Hi All

	Attached is the proposed updated Wiki page

	Let me know if you have any comments?

	Imaging Device Security Working Group (IDS)


	The industry is moving beyond basic authentication for access to
corporate networks to a fairly detailed assessment of the device that is
connecting before being allowed to access the network.
	Examples of what's being measured for PC Clients: OS Type,
Version, Patch Level, Anti-virus Type, Version, Definition Level, Is
	Hardcopy Devices attach to networks, but there's no standard set
of metrics that is used to assess an HCD.
	Our Goal is to provide these metrics!!!
	What we are doing:      

	*       Defining a standard set of metrics that might be
measured or assessed in Hardcopy Devices to gauge if they should be
given access to a network

	*       Defining example "bindings" for how these metrics are
used in the individual network assessment protocols. 

	Current Documents:

	IDS Attributes Specification
	IDS NAP Binding Specification

	Who is Involved?
