Agent needs authentication parameters. This will allow remote machines to securely check in without first VPN'ing into the network. If you open your KBox up to the Internet now to allow remote agents to check in then any machine with the Kbox agent can check in to your server - a major security breach. I want this to know the status of remote computers. I would not expect to push installs since a WAN link could not handle large files.
Are there any technical details as to how the authentication is achieved?

this is just as simple as having the agent include the Box's serail# or some pre-determined hash along with all of their communications to the KACE box.

At least, have the clients disabled on first check in so it won't consume a license right away.
