Improving Security Through Automated Policy Enforcement
Thursday, January 1, 2004
The growing threat and impact of computer worms and viruses has forced many institutions to look for automated solutions to improve the security of devices that connect to campus networks. The common process of network registration, vulnerability detection, isolation or quarantine, and remediation is described in a recent white paper developed by Internet2's SALSA Net-Auth Working Group, "Strategies for Automating Network Policy Enforcement." Effective campus implementations range from homegrown solutions developed with open source products to commercial products. This session will describe the challenges of managing personally owned computers or distributed technology on the campus network and will offer effective practices and solutions for improving security through automated policy compliance.
