The economic dependence on the fast and inexpensive exchange of information that has arisen as a result of globalisation is leading to ever increasing levels of networking. The internet provides a communication infrastructure that is available worldwide. However, it does not offer any opportunity for trustworthy communication, as it is not possible to analyse the computer systems found in the network with respect to their system integrity and trustworthiness. The same also applies to intranets. Visitors and field workers who use their computer systems – for example notebooks – both outside and within the company network represent a threat to the company with these computer systems. Through the use of the computer systems outside the company network they are also working outside the protective measures and control area of the company’s IT. Solution approaches such as Trusted Network Connect (TNC) provide methods for determining the integrity of end points which serve as a basis for trustwor-thy communication. The configurations of the end points can be measured on both the software and hardware level. Through the reconciliation of defined safety rules it is possible to realise policy-controlled access control.

Only a few decades ago data and documents were exchanged both within and between firms either personally or by post. For the transport of sensitive data it was necessary to use trustworthy communication pathways, such as the company’s own postal service. Subsequently initial forms of electronic data transmission, e.g. transmission by fax or the first networks offered the opportunity of transmitting documents quickly from A to B. However, it was not possible to guarantee the confidential transmission of sensitive data.
