                         draft-ietf-sacm-ecp-02

Abstract

   This document specifies the Endpoint Posture Collection Profile,
   which describes the best practices for the application of IETF and
   TNC protocols and interfaces to support the on-going collection,
   communication, and assessment of endpoint posture, as well as the
   controlled exposure of endpoint posture to other tools.  This
   document is an extension of the Trusted Computing Group's Endpoint
   Compliance Profile Version 1.0 specification.
