Security and Technology Ramblings…

I’ve setup a small lab with PacketFence. So far, interfaced only with Cisco 3550 / 2960 switches. I’ve got to say that this product has impressed me thus far. One of the best put together open source projects I have seen. Definitely worth taking a look at.

PacketFence is a fully supported, trusted, Free and Open Source network access control (NAC) system. Boasting an impressive feature set including a captive-portal for registration and remediation, centralized wired and wireless management, 802.1X support, layer-2 isolation of problematic devices, integration with the Snort IDS and the Nessus vulnerability scanner; PacketFence can be used to effectively secure networks – from small to very large heterogeneous networks.
