Mike McCauley, OSC’s Chief Technologist, has joined Trusted Computing Group (TCG) as an invited expert. Mike works with the Trusted Network Connect (TNC) working group which is developing open specifications for network security and end point integrity. These specifications will provide network access control which allows network devices to be checked for health and compliance with network security requirements. The working group’s membership is made up of representatives from Juniper Networks, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Microsoft, Intel, Nortel Networks and more. See TCG’s website for more details.

Mike is keen to ensure the specifications are open and accessible to all operating systems and platforms. He has also developed LIBTNC, an open source library that integrates with the TNC server and client software. Read the whitepaper for more information.
