I am creating a lab environment to test 802.1x prior to implementing it into production.
I wanted to know what is the pros and cons of this security feature at layer 2?
How does it really work behind the scenes?
The reason why i want to implement this feature/function is becuase I'm just one of two network administrators who manage well over 800 networking device (totally cisco shop) and 62 remote sites, and we struggle with the moves, adds, and changes, port vlan assignment (management), users moving there workstations, users moving there voip phones, etc. If anyone can speak on implementing 802.1x wired in a medium to large large network i will be happy to hear about the real life pros and cons
