Detect a Forced MAC

By S.P.A.R.K.Y. ·
How can one detect if a Computer on the network has a forced MAC address?

It's for security that an unregistered PC cannot get access to our network.

You register your MAC and if registered, the server gives you an IP, else it directs you to a VLAN with no access.

3 or 4 factor authentication.

MAC address is one but there are cloning tools to get around that. The next is computer accounts and user accounts.

So you use MAC filtering [in DHCP], then computer account and last require a user name and password.

If they gain connectivity [not access to domain on the LAN, then you use proxy server for the gateway out. only those with proper proxy information can get out.

if you want to redirect unauthorized users to a honeypot, you have to setup the honeypot where they will want to access that network which gets them no where.

Basically use a TACACS+ or RADIUS solution.
