Abstract

An efficient compliance checking for the status of many computer devices in a network is described. In order to check compliance for such a network usually an auditor has to inspect all devices, has to ensure that they are all in a compliant state, and that all audit logs are untampered and acceptable. It is proposed to introduce a trusted third party (TTP) acting as owner of all devices.
