New security guidelines that govern the features and use of devices such 
as printers, copiers and multifunction systems are available, but 
details about hardware compliant to these standards are scant.

The IEEE 2600, said to be the first set of standards for "secure 
installation, configuration, or usage" of hardcopy devices, are targeted
