Trusted Computing Group Announces Integration of Security Protocols

Trusted Computing Group (TCG), which develops industry standards for security, announced that its Trusted Network Connect (TNC) standards have been integrated with the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) standards developed by the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).


SCAP-validated scanners can now be used with TNC network security gear to identify and quarantine unhealthy devices. This will improve compliance with less cost by automating compliance checking and network enforcement on millions of PCs and other systems.


"To address the information security threats of the 21st century, we must integrate and automate our defenses - especially the way that information flows across the defensive enterprise," said Tony Sager, Chief of the Vulnerability Analysis and Operations Group at the National Security Agency (NSA). "Using the TNC and SCAP standards together is a great step forward in this integration effort, and this also demonstrates the power of public-private collaboration."http://www.trustedcomputinggroup.org/
