Connection request policies use conditions and settings to authenticate network access requests and govern where this authentication is performed. One connection request policy is required for each NAP enforcement method that is deployed. When you select a network connection method using the NAP configuration wizard, connection request policies are configured with the required authentication settings automatically. The NAP configuration wizard is shown in the following figure.
