The information in this specification is applicable to the following Microsoft products or supplemental software. References to product versions include released service packs.

  • Windows XP operating system Service Pack 3 (SP3)

  • Windows Vista operating system

  • Windows Server 2008 operating system

  • Windows 7 operating system

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system

  • Windows 8 operating system

  • Windows Server 2012 operating system

  • Windows 8.1 operating system

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system

Exceptions, if any, are noted below. If a service pack or Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) number appears with the product version, behavior changed in that service pack or QFE. The new behavior also applies to subsequent service packs of the product unless otherwise specified. If a product edition appears with the product version, behavior is different in that product edition.

Unless otherwise specified, any statement of optional behavior in this specification that is prescribed using the terms "SHOULD" or "SHOULD NOT" implies product behavior in accordance with the SHOULD or SHOULD NOT prescription. Unless otherwise specified, the term "MAY" implies that the product does not follow the prescription.

<1> Section 2.2.1.2:  The NAP Subnet Mask (NAP-Mask) packet sent by the DHCP server is not used by the Windows clients supporting DHCP NAP enforcement.

<2> Section 2.2.1.3: Windows DHCP clients supporting DHCP NAP enforcement use the method specified in NAP EC API ([MSDN-NAPAPI], and [MSDN-NAPCORRID]) to generate a NAP transaction correlation identifier that to a very high degree of certainty is unique. The correlation identifier generated by [MSDN-NAPCORRID] is a combination of the string representation of a GUID [MSDN-GUID] and a time stamp.

The string representation of the GUID [MSDN-GUID] is "{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}". The string representation of the time stamp is "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.LLLZ", which represents the sequence year, month, date, hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds, and the character "Z". The two string references are combined together to form the string representation of the correlation identifier, as follows:"{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX} – YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.LLLZ"

This combination is a 65-character Unicode string, which is equivalent to 130 bytes.

<3> Section 3.1.5.2: Windows DHCP clients use the Windows Firewall to block IPv6 traffic on the network interface when the client is being quarantined.

<4> Section 3.1.5.2: Windows DHCP clients use the Windows Firewall to block IPv6 traffic on the network interface when the client is being quarantined.

<5> Section 3.1.5.2: The NAP Subnet Mask (NAP-Mask) packet (see 2.2.1.2) sent by the DHCP server is not used by Windows clients supporting DHCP NAP enforcement.

<6> Section 3.1.5.3: Windows DHCP servers do not ignore the NAP-SoH option (section 2.2.1.1) or the NAP-IPv6 (section 2.2.1.4) option sent by the client.

<7> Section 3.2.5.3: Windows DHCP servers do not extract the SoH token from the NAP-SoH (section 2.2.1.1) option sent by the client or pass the SoH to the health policy server.
