Topic: Digital Security


Microsoft is proposing a new Internet-wide security model, based on the concepts of public health, that is designed to address the problem of how to prevent infected machines from affecting the security and performance of PCs elsewhere on the Web. The model would require each PC to present a "health certificate" that outlines its security posture before it could connect to the Internet.
