802.1x (DOT1x) and Cisco Clean Access 3140

Hi,

We have about 300 remote sites and would like to implement an authentication mechanism to authenticate end-devices (Windows PCs) before allowing access to the network. We thought we could implement DOT1x on our Cisco 2960, 3750 and 4500 series switches and send the "PC-switch" access requests to our centrally located Cisco Clean Access 3140 NAC servers -back at the HQ sites. We understand the NAC servers will be used to authenticate (among other things) the end-users workstations to ensure each workstation is a company owned PC and all  the security parameters are installed and up today. -RIGHT?

:

Can the Cisco Clean Access 3140 server perform the Authentication security checks from the 802.1x (DOT1x) enabled switches?

Does the Cisco Clean Access 3140 server have to be inline (on the users subnet) and/or be centrally located?

Is the Cisco Clean Access 3140 still usable?

Thanks

Frank
