802.1x at the hardware level RRS feed

  • Question

  • We’re a large financial services company and are searching for a solution that involves wired 802.1x port access authentication at the hardware level (NIC, NIC chipsets) at the pre OS stage.  Anyone familiar with OEMs that are leading the way in this implementation? 

    If you are requiring more info to better the response, please let me know.

  • We see a lot of hardware come through our labs for testing purposes but have yet to come across a hardware implementation with embedded 802.1X.
