Subject: [unisog] Access control in wireless and other plublic access

Hi All,
	We are a looking for access control methods for large new project
that will see both wireless LANs and publicly accessible network sockets in
a large study area.  I have followed this list since its inception so I have
seen the previous discussions on securing wireless LANs and I am following
up several leads including Vernier and Nokia.

The problem of securing publicly accessible network ports strikes me as
being very similar to that of controlling access on a wireless network.

My question is "Is anyone using the same systems to secure both wireless and
physical ports?".

Having one mechanism for both has obvious attractions.

I'd also like to know of any 'new' products that I might miss by
concentrating my research on the list archives.

Cheers and thanks,
