                        draft-ietf-sacm-epcp-00

Abstract

   This document specifies the Endpoint Posture Collection Profile,
   which describes the best practices for the application of IETF, TNC,
   and ISO/IEC data models, protocols, and interfaces to support the on-
   going collection and communication of endpoint posture to a
   centralized server where it can be stored and made available to other
   tools.
