802.1x in nested VMWARE environment

Hello,

My Scenario is:

We plan to deploy HP Blade centres, with multiple VMWARE instances on each blade.

We will be using the HP Flex 10 interconnect to provide (8 per Flex connect) 10GE to Catalyst 6500 Chassis.

The VMWARE instances must be capable of being restricted to a specific VLAN/Subnet, by Dot1X. This is a design mandate by the customer, and no other security solution will be accepted.

The VMWARE instances on each blade may be in disparate VLANs

My Question is:

Given that the Flex 10--->Cisco 10GE ports are effectively trunks, can we enforce dot1X separation on the 6500? If so, can anyone give a precis or case-study how?

Many thanks

Pete
