Cisco ACS 3.0 EAP-TLS

Did anybody here use EAP-TLS authentication for Wireless NICs from other vendors?

This link talks about how to configure dynamic key encryption for generic 802.1x that comes with Windows XP. But conerns are

1> Can we support mixed wireless NICs, say we have some users using Cisco NICs with LEAP, and some users using Compaq NICs on XP machine using EAP-TLS. What changes do we need to do on ACS and AP in order to provide this support?

2> Do 802.1x from XP and LEAP from Cisco provide the same level of security or LEAP is more secure?

Re: Cisco ACS 3.0 EAP-TLS

It’s my understanding that Cisco LEAP is more robust from a security standpoint. I don’t believe you can pick and choose. If your environment has non-Cisco nics as well, you’ll have to abandon LEAP support for now and just use EAP. Am I wrong? Anyone out there know for sure? If so, I can’t find a config example anywhere.

Re: Cisco ACS 3.0 EAP-TLS

I don't think there's any problem interoperating between LEAP and EAP. Configuration for EAP-TLS is avaliable in CCO.
