6 secrets to a successful 802.1X rollout
- 11 June, 2012 14:07
Implementing and supporting 802.1X authentication on your network can be a challenge, but here are some tips that can help save you some time, money, and frustration.
1. Consider a Free or Low-Cost RADIUS Server
For small and midsized networks, you don't have to spend a fortune on a RADIUS (remote authentication dial-in user service) server. First check if your router platform, directory service, or any other server provides RADIUS/AAA (authentication, authorization, accounting) for you already. For example, if you're running an Active Directory domain with a Windows Server, look into the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) component of Windows Server 2003 R2 and earlier or the Network Policy Server (NPS) component of Windows Server 2008 and later.

Endpoint Security and Virtualisation
Besides form factor, virtual systems are not really that different than physical systems. They both use the same operating systems and applications. They both present users with computing resources such as RAM and hard drives. Consequently, the ability to exploit vulnerabilities in a physical environment will present a significant threat to virtualised environments as well. This paper examines the different endpoint security methods for virtualised environments and presents how Endpoint Protection security provides optimal performance, protection and manageability.
