We're planning next year's TechNet events at the moment and at present the following topics will be added to the security track:

* An additional PKI session where we drill into secure email (S/MIME) in more depth

* A session covering Quarantine for secure remote access

* Deep coverage of Windows Rights Management - we'll spend two hours drilling into both the client and server side

When Windows Vista is nearer to release we'll take a detailed look at Network Access Protection (NAP) - you can read about it now at

Please comment to this post listing topics you'd like covered. The programme will include online events as well as in person.

Thank you.
