The Cisco NAC Profiler enhances the deployment and administration of Cisco NAC by maintaining a real-time list of all network-attached endpoints, such as IP phones and networked printers. This dynamic list can be used in several ways: populating the Cisco NAC Appliance Manager (Cisco Clean Access Manager) filter list to provision connectivity for all non-PC endpoints, such as printers, IP phones, uninterruptible power supplies, and wireless access points; providing behavior monitoring to defend against post-admission MAC address spoofing and compromised devices that are not running the Cisco NAC Appliance Agent (Cisco Clean Access Agent); enabling incremental deployment of Cisco NAC Appliances across the enterprise by device type or network segment; providing a set of tools that allows the real-time and historical tracking of endpoint location, identity, behavior, and addressing.
The Cisco NAC Profiler Collector uses the host port of the Cisco Clean Access Server for communications and the open Ethernet port ("eth3") for monitoring network traffic, fed by a Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) configuration. As each Cisco NAC Profiler Collector gathers information from the associated endpoints, it aggregates this data into an Extensible Markup Language (XML) format and sends it over an encrypted connection to the Cisco NAC Profiler Server for entry into the endpoint profiling database. Here, the data from all the Cisco NAC Profiler Collectors is combined and represented as a comprehensive list of information. Administrators can view this information within the Cisco Clean Access Manager and use it to provision the appropriate endpoint device type and corresponding access privileges into the Cisco NAC Appliance.
The Cisco NAC Profiler Collector failover bundle must be selected if you have installed or are installing Cisco Clean Access Servers in failover or high-availability mode. In this scenario, the failover state of each Clean Access Server will determine the failover state of its corresponding Cisco NAC Profiler Collector.
