                      Endpoint Compliance Profile
                        draft-haynes-sacm-ecp-02

Abstract

   This document specifies the Endpoint Compliance Profile, a high-level
   specification that describes a specific combination and application
   of NEA and TNC protocols and interfaces specifically designed to
   support ongoing assessment of endpoint posture and the controlled
   exposure of collected posture information to appropriate security
   applications.  This document is a subset of the Trusted Computing
   Group's Endpoint Compliance Profile Version 1.0 specification.
