A Clientless Endpoint Authentication Scheme Based on TNC
Trusted Network Connect (TNC) proposes a hierarchical and scalable architecture to securely and efficiently control endpoints` admission to the trusted computing platform to implement message passing and resource sharing. But, not all endpoints support or run a functional TNC client performing integrity checking, which represents a security risk in lots of environments. The authors have to consider the problem how to make these \"Clientless endpoints\" access to trusted networks. It is of significance for improving the TNC mechanism.
