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