Port Security / Switch-based security

Is there a to secure a switch, to allow only certain MAC addresses to get access to the network??? I know there is port security, where you configure a port with x number of MAC addresses and there you go, but is there a system where the Switch queries a database for the MAC addresses for any port, similar to how dynamic VLANS work?

I want to secure the network, but need the flexibility for systems to move from port to port or switch to switch.

You should look at VLAN Management Policy Server (VMPS) to acheiev what you want.

Cisco offers a product known as URT (User Registration Tool)

Thanks for your reply and the info. It is to bad that Cisco doesn't have anything to automate its port security without going to VLans, the way I want to do it anyways. Thanks again.

You could either have a look at EAP authentication, see:http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/cc/pd/sqsw/sq/tech/deacs_wp.htm

or something like URT:
