JJ- Back in the lab: 802.1X and more
Updated on Saturday, 28 January 2012 06:41

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been missing in action yet again, so I thought I’d give you all a quick update. I’ve been on site quite a bit recently, working on various customer projects and security implementations.

I’m spending time in the coming weeks in the lab here; mostly working on access control, port security, 802.1X and possibly even some NAC/NAP proof of concepts.

To those of you who have posted comments or emailed questions to me; I promise I’m getting to them! I’ve received quite a few inquiries on various 802.1X topics; implementations, functions and the new standards coming out. Stay tuned for more on the new 802.1X-REV, including my SecTor recap (YES, I know I’m behind schedule).

In the meantime, if you have specific questions about 802.1X or port security in general, please let me know. I have a few fun things I’m going to play with in the lab, including 3rd party and TNC framework integrations, as well as some NAP concepts. I’ll be glad to use any spare time available to test configurations and theories and get back to you!

FYI. My current lab configuration uses Windows-based endpoints and servers. I have FreeRADIUS and Funk available as well, but most current play time will be conducted on Windows, including Windows XP SP3, Windows 7, Windows 2008, Windows 2008 R2.
