1 Introduction

This document specifies the Group Policy: Wireless/Wired Protocol Extension, hereafter referred to as the Wireless/Wired Group Policy Protocol.

The Wireless/Wired Group Policy Protocol depends on the Microsoft Group Policy: Core Protocol, as specified in [MS-GPOL].

The Wireless/Wired Group Policy Protocol consists of Wireless/Wired Group Policy administrative-side and client-side plug-ins. The administrative-side plug-in specifies and edits wireless or wired policy settings through a user interface, and uses the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to store the settings to a specific location in a logical structure known as the Group Policy Object (GPO). The client-side plug-in uses LDAP to retrieve the Wireless/Wired policy settings from the specified location and then applies these settings to the client. This document specifies the behavior of the Wireless/Wired Group Policy administrative-side and client-side plug-ins.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
