Description: International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) T.128: Multipoint Application Sharing defines a protocol that supports multipoint application sharing. The T.128 protocol supports multipoint computer application sharing by allowing a view onto a computer application executing at one site to be advertised within a session to other sites. Each site can, under specified conditions, take control of the shared computer application by sending remote keyboard and pointing device information. This style of application sharing does not require and does not make provisions for synchronizing multiple instances of the same computer application running at multiple sites. Instead, it enables remote viewing and control of a single application instance to provide the illusion that the application is running locally.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
