MAC and IP binding in CentOS 6.3

I have a application which is running on CentOS 6.3 under tomcat web server and other computer in our LAN  can access this application. Is this possible to bind MAC and IP of  computers so that other computers in our LAN cannot make connection to to our application.

I would rather do this:

#/bin/bash
LAN=eth0
MAC=00:02:A5:EC:00:8B
IP=10.0.0.110

# If the mac is arriving with a different ip than authorized, drop it:
 iptables -A INPUT -i ${LAN} -m mac --mac-source ${MAC} -s! ${IP} -j DROP
 iptables -A INPUT -i ${LAN} -m mac --mac-source ${MAC} -s ${IP} -j ACCEPT
#end of script

you can also have a file pairing ip's and mac addresses.

say you have the file mac_ip.txt (mac address, then a space, then the ip address)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
00:02:A5:EC:00:8B 10.0.0.110
00:12:B5:EC:00:1A 10.0.0.112
...
etc
-------------------------------------------------------------------

then a simple script like this do the job:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
#/bin/bash
LAN=eth0
while read mac ip; do
   iptables -A INPUT -i ${LAN} -m mac --mac-source ${MAC} -s! ${IP} -j DROP
   iptables -A INPUT -i ${LAN} -m mac --mac-source ${MAC} -s ${IP} -j ACCEPT
done < mac_ip.txt
-------------------------------------------------------------------

hope this helps

You can setup host (ip) based ACL via hosts.allow or hosts.deny -

You can do mac address filtering in ip tables but it is not recommended as it is high maintenance -
