802.1x implementation: NAP vs NAP-NAC RRS feed

  • Question

  • All,

    Can anyone explain, what are benefits of NAP vs NAP-NAC implementation ?

    I'm going to test Microsoft NAP 802.1x enforcement in my lab.


    We have some Win XP SP3 clients.

    All access switches are Cisco 3650.

    Computers should be assigned into several VLANs (managers, sales, tech, dev + Remediation VLAN).


    Is it possible to assign computer to the specific VLAN by user's AD group membership ? Can it be implemented by Microsoft NAP ?

  • Hi,


    Thanks for update.


    Generally speak, if you had already purchased windows OS and Cisco devices in your environment ,and had also implemented NAP or NAC deployment, with NAP-NAC ,it could help you to integrate these together for preserve investments.


    Please take time to read the article and the links in its first :
