Talha,


Yes, it's possible to deploy NAC without CA. You can use the self-signed certs, or get a cert from a third party vendor (Verisign or Godaddy etc)

It is recommended, not necessary. With self-signed certs you will have other issues also - like clients getting warning messages and other such nuisances.
