Network Admission Control(NAC). Dynamically check for machine security requ

Hi All,

Please suggest how to Accomplish the below scenario..

1) Enable 802.1x on Cisco switches - Network Admission Control(NAC). Dynamically check for machine security requirments and based on user ID put them in appropriate VLAN and apply access policies.

2)If a workstation does not comply with security requirements(Not having the correct patches, AV software, Firewall etc) the machine would be automatically moved to Remediation ( a separate VLAN for security reason) VLAN.

Hi Prateesh,

You are looking for NAC feature. For this you basically need 3 major parts. Policy server, NAC aware devices and end stations with proper software installed.

You need a policy server on you network which could be AAA server at the back end and router with NAC aware IOS feature set. on the end station you need CSA ( Cisco Security agent ). With the conmination of these three componenets you will be able to achieve the end-point security.

Please go through the link below for more info :

HTH, Please rate if it does.
