TNC and SCAP: An Integrated Solution for Automating Security
Detecting and thwarting the threats and vulnerabilities of today's computer systems and networks have challenged technical professionals from numerous companies and government organizations.
NIST's SCAP was created as a community effort to create a common set of standards to help express and automate configuration management. The SCAP standards provide a common language for organizations to perform continuous monitoring and assessment of the endpoint population in regards to compliance with required configurations and the existence of known vulnerabilities for the ultimate purpose of minimizing the attack surface of each endpoint.
