We are looking at implementing Trustsec in a heavily virtualized environment, but we are starting to think it may not be ready for prime time in this case.

It looks like the 1000v doesn’t support it yet, but may in the future. 

Looking at the 5000, it looks like it supports Network Interface Virtualization (NIV, i.e. “virtual machine mobility”), but it doesn’t look like the 5000 supports TrustSec.

The 7000 supports trust sec, but doesn’t look like it supports NIV.

Has anyone else tackled this issue and able to share the results?

What about just Plain Old 802.1X?



I have this problem too.
