    More often users are demanding devices from the choices that they make in the consumer space. Enterprise IT needs to figure out ways to meet the security needs of the enterprise while making the customers happy with the device they are using.

    Couldn't agree more with this idea. TSA has built a mobile architecture for secure access to back-end web services that uses the standard Open Authentication (OAuth)to validate the user and mobile app. This approach could be used by other agencies.

    Why reinvent the wheel if we don't have to?

      The user and the app might be trusted, but the devices themselves we have today are horribly insecure... even with bolt-on 'security' apps.

    I've never seen a federal 'reference architecture' that's been very useful, and I've seen more than a few.

    Take for example the recent federal 'telework RA', which explicitly stated that it ignored mobility and not federally owned devices.

      "not" - Non-federally owned devices... apparently you can Delete but not Edit a post.
