Submission + - Microsoft plans universal network access control (

An anonymous reader writes: The corporate vice president of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Group has used his keynote at RSA 2010 to outline plans for universal network access controls . Scott Charney said that there is a case to be made for computers being scanned before going online to make sure that no malware is present and that applications are patched properly. Microsoft recognises that there are huge legal, social and e-commerce ramifications to such a scheme, which would have to be tested extensively at a large enterprise level before being rolled out.
