Basic Network Security - locking down ports
Posted on 2011-04-29
I was just pulled into a team to provide a solution for a large government entity. I know some basic network stuff, but I need a good solution quickly.
Here's what we're trying to accomplish:
Lock down all the network ports in the building. As of now, anyone can plug in their personal laptop and access all parts of the network. We'd like to possibly us LDAP or MAC addresses from the laptops owned by the client the only access. Personal laptops should have access, but only basic internet if possible.
The building runs all of the ports off of a Cisco Catalyst 6500e switch. This is also a Windows Server environment. What are my options and the commands (unfamiliar with Cisco commands) to make this happen.
