To restrict access to a lan the network shall be equipped with switches,
that are capable of 802.1x authentication on a per port basis.
Only client machines with a valid machine account in a central active
directory shall get access.
As I have never had to do with active directory, I am unsure, whether
freeradius is suited to be used for the authentication process.
googling around I found the following assertion:
FreeRADIUS at this time cannot perform machine account authentications,
but it supports proxying them off to another RADIUS server (for example,
IAS, or FUNK)
Is this true? If not, is there any documentation available, that
describes the setup?
Which credentials are used by that kind of authentication: account
names/passwords , certificates,...?
