I'm quite new to the Cisco world. I wonder if and how it is possible to marry Cisco ASA with Microsoft NAP (in Terms of VPN Enforcement). Does anybody know some helpful documents? Is an ACS Server/Appliance necessary?
No, you don't need acs if you want to integrate asa with nps for vpn and adminiterative (telnet/ssh) access. With Microsoft nps you just can't configure Tacacs related features like command authorization and command accounting. I will try to post a document/link for your reference.
