Policies in NPS

Policies in NPS

Network Policy Server (NPS) provides three different types of policies:

Connection request policies. Sets of conditions and settings that allow network administrators to designate which RADIUS servers perform the authentication and authorization of connection requests that the NPS server receives from RADIUS clients. Connection request policies can be configured to designate which RADIUS servers are used for RADIUS accounting.

ImportantImportant
When you deploy Network Access Protection (NAP) using the VPN or 802.1X enforcement methods with PEAP authentication, you must configure PEAP authentication in connection request policy even when connection requests are processed locally.

Health policies. One or more system health validators (SHVs) and other settings that allow you to define client computer configuration requirements for the NAP-capable computers that attempt to connect to your network. Health policies are used only with NAP.

Network policies. Sets of conditions, constraints, and settings that allow you to designate who is authorized to connect to the network and the circumstances under which they can or cannot connect. When you deploy NAP, health policy is added to the network policy configuration so that NPS performs client health checks during the authorization process.

ImportantImportant
These policies are different from and unrelated to Group Policy.
