Adoption of TNC standards extends beyond vendors and end-users to other standards organizations, as well. The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Network Endpoint Assessment (NEA) working group published several RFCs based on TNC client-server protocols:
|IETF RFC||TNC Specification|
|PA-TNC: A Posture Attribute (PA) Protocol Compatible with Trusted Network Connect (TNC) - RFC 5792||TNC IF-M: TLV Binding Version 1.0|
|PB-TNC: A Posture Broker (PB) Protocol Compatible with Trusted Network Connect (TNC) - RFC 5793||TNC IF-TNCCS: TLV Binding Version 2.0|
|A Posture Transport Protocol over TLS (PT-TLS) - RFC 6876||TNC IF-T Binding to TLS Version 2.0|
|PT-EAP: Posture Transport (PT) Protocol for Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) Tunnel Methods - RFC 7171||TNC IF-T: Protocol Bindings for Tunneled EAP Methods, Version 2.0|
In addition, TNC members are active contributors to the IETF Security Automation and Continuous Monitoring (SACM) working group.
Membership in the Trusted Computing Group is your key to participating with fellow industry stakeholders in the quest to develop and promote trusted computing technologies.
Standards-based Trusted Computing technologies developed by TCG members now are deployed in enterprise systems, storage systems, networks, embedded systems, and mobile devices and can help secure cloud computing and virtualized systems.
Trusted Computing Group announced that its TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) Library Specification was approved as a formal international standard under ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission). TCG has 90+ specifications and guidance documents to help build a trusted computing environment.
