Our next monthly meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at Lincoln Square Center in Bellevue at 6:00PM.

Session Details
Our guest speaker will be Joe Davies, a Principal Writer for Windows Server at Microsoft. The topic of his presentation is "Network Access Protection (NAP) Technical Overview."

Please join us for an in-depth technical discussion of the NAP platform and its implementation in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. NAP is the Network Access Control (NAC) solution built into Windows and can be used to control access to network resources based on a client computer’s identity and system health compliance with organizational security policies. In addition to built-in support for system heath validation based on the Windows Security Center and enforcement for DHCP, 802.1X, IPsec, and remote access VPN-based connections, NAP is also a platform for third-party software vendors and system integrators to create complete and customized NAC solutions.

Joe has been teaching and writing about Windows networking technologies since 1993 and is the author of eight books from Microsoft Press. Joe also writes The Cable Guy column for TechNet Magazine online. Joe's complete bio is available here .
