PacketFence 3.1.0 adds new features and hardware support
Version 3.1.0 of the open source PacketFence network access control (NAC) system is now available. It allows system administrators to offer guest access, harden their networks to users bringing their own devices, forbid rogue access points, and provide compliance checks. It can also assist in isolating problematic devices.
Other changes include support for CentOS 6.2 and wirelessly provisioning iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad. Hardware support now includes the Cisco 3750 in MAC-Auth or 802.1x mode. Although disabled by default, a preview of support for wired port-bounce on Cisco systems through Change-of-Authorisation Messages (CoA – RFC3576) is included. New Hebrew translations have been added and the Brazilian Portuguese translation has been updated.
More information about the update, including a full list of new features and enhancements, can be found in the release announcement and in the change log. PacketFence 3.1.0 is available to download as source and as RPMs for versions 5 and 6 of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS; updated documentation is provided. Licensed under the GPLv2, PacketFence is sponsored and developed by Inverse.
