Tricky Question for an Upcoming IT Interview

Hello Peeps!

I would appreciate if you guys can give me a hand with a question that needs to be answered for an interview I have. It's a Position as a Jr Tech for an Educational Organization.

You have just received 200 brand new computers to authenticate, image and test for the new program for the upcoming school year. You have 2 weeks before school starts. There is a number of sites that need to be unblocked from the firewall, an authentication protocol, and a list of plug-ins that need to be installed. How does that affect your imaging process?

What I'm trying to figure out is, what do they mean by "Authentication protocol"

I'm confused...

Thank you for taking the time!

Since Windows comes with an authentication protocol built-in

This implies that some additional authentication protocol must be installed. Included with, but not enabled by default, is 802.1X authentication protocol, for example.

Also, if perchance they are using something like RSA SecurID authentication tokens to authenticate, or some other ultra-secure third-party biometric solution, then the client software for those solutions would need to be installed on the workstation.
