New Google API cryptographically secures Chromebooks

Google is making it possible for enterprises to cryptographically validate Chrome OS devices before letting them connect to secure networks with its new Verified Access for Chrome OS.

With Verified Access, network services — VPN gateways, sensitive servers, an enterprise certificate authority, enterprise Wi-Fi access points — can get a hardware-backed cryptographic guarantee from the client machine that it has not been compromised and the user is who he or she claims to be.

Verified Access uses the Trusted Platform Module chip present on all Chrome OS devices to confirm the device is unmodified and complies with existing security policies. The network service uses that information to determine what level of access the device gets to sensitive corporate systems and applications.
