if its a decent switch with AAA and full RADIUS support, then you can
simply configure dot1x on thw switch so that this can be achieved. configure
the switch to talk to the RADIUS box...the radius box will then be handed
the machine certificate etc and, if valid, return an appropriate VLAN
for the switch to move the port to. not a m0n0wall function.
