Cisco NAC only for MS customers

I have two concerns regarding Cisco NAC.

Will it work for Cisco customers running something else than Microsoft on their clients?

Why does Cisco not develop NAC towards LDAP instead of AD?

As far as I see it this whole NAC thing is just a big Microsoft-Cisco deal. The world looks different today and Cisco better see that otherwise NAC will not be around for long.

Re: Cisco NAC only for MS customers

i guess cisco kicks off the progarm focusing on windows is due to the fact that windows have more vulnerabilities than any other platforms. agree?

Regarding your concerns about Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC):

NAC will work for customers running operating systems from companies other than Microsoft. NAC 2.1 includes a Linux Cisco Trust Agent (CTA) that works with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (several versions).

NAC uses the CiscoSecure Access Control Server (ACS) as both its authentication server and policy manager. ACS can be configured to use a variety of different authentication sources (besides the built in Radius capability). ACS can use LDAP to talk to a variety of different authentication sources.

NAC was developed to be far more than a "Microsoft-Cisco deal".
