What switch

Unanswered Question
Jul 31st, 2007

Hi. I want to buy a switch for ethernet workgroups with some security features:

- IEEE 802.1x with dinamic vlan;

- PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS;

- User's traffic profile;

- Guest vlan;

- Users can be assigned a VLAN upon authentication;

- Isolated vlan for workstation without security policies (Quarentine solution).

Is it good?

Sugestions?

Which switch?

Thks guy.

Paulo,

All the Cisco enteprise level switches supports these features. You need Cisco ACS (AAA Server) to achieve all these fatures on the Cisco switches. For IBNS (Identity based network service) like 802.1x with dynamic vlan and guest vlan assignment, user vlan assignment on autehntication you need to configure 802.1x on switches with AAA along with the Cisco ACS.

For Querntine Vlan, all the Cisco switches support NAC (network admission control) and you probably need a NAC server to filter out the user traffic.
