Remember my previous post about Network Access Protection - NAP which will be available with Longhorn Server somewhere next year.
Now the NAP team have there own blog and can be found on: http://blogs.msdn.com/nap.
They have posted a video from the MMS 2006 keynote where they show the NAP integration into "System Center Configuration Manager 2007" - SMSv4 for who does not know the new name yet.
There is also a webcast coming soon:
TechNet Webcast: Security Matters: Network Access Protection (Level 300)
Wednesday, June 07, 2006 - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific Time
Elliot Lewis, Network Security Architect, Microsoft Corporation
In this webcast, we examine the infrastructure elements and processes that are affected when you deploy the Network Access Protection (NAP) policy enforcement platform that is part of Windows Vista and the next release of Windows Server, code-named "Longhorn". We provide guidance on deploying NAP and present a framework that can help you determine the proper amount of time and resources you need when preparing for NAP operations.
Check it out its very cool.
