We want to go further than netreg in the quarantine department.  We 
don't want students on the same VLAN until they are safe so we will 
manipulate the switches (as we currently do by hand).  We have most of 
that part already figured out but want to decide what to scan with.  We 
are considering nessus.  VERY good to see some of you are using it for 
the scanning.
