Title: USING IN-THE-CLOUD STORAGE FOR COMPUTER HEALTH DATA
Abstract:
A policy enforcement point (PEP) controls access to a network in accordance with one or more policy statements that specify conditions for compliant devices. The PEP receives current health data from a device seeking to access the network, and stores this health data in local volatile memory. If the health data stored in local volatile memory complies with the policy statements, the device is permitted to access the network. Otherwise, the device is denied access to the network, or permitted only limited access to the network in order to resolve its compliance issues. The PEP occasionally stores the health data in local persistent memory and on an online service (OLS). During reboot, the PEP accesses the OLS to confirm that it has the most recent health data. If more recent health data is available from the OLS, the OLS provides this more recent data to the PEP.
