Abstract

There is a large concern on how to protect assets as more and more clients become mobile with wireless access capability. Many customers want to prevent a client from working when a system leaves the enterprise. Current solutions can allow a system to work or boot by authenticating to the user but are not location sensitive. Adding location sensitivity to the boot process will add additional security to the boot process.
