An updated version of ASF (2.0) is currently in DMTF company review that
"adds security protocols to RMCP messages."  So, the message below is not
totally correct.  This version of the spec will be available shortly after
company review ends (Oct 15th).

There has been some other work in the area of getting out
notifications of "pre-OS" systems, e.g.,
http://www.dmtf.org/standards/documents/ASF/DSP0114.pdf

However, this work does *not* address security, other than
to discourage implementors from providing protocol-level
security and to instead rely on "deployment schemes and
firewalls" (!).

Could information delivered via DHCP be used to accomplish a
"kick start" of the secrets, similar to that in RFC 2786?
