        Network Access Protection (NAP) is a new policy enforcement technology in the Windows Vista® operating system and Windows Server® 2008 operating system. NAP provides components and an application programming interface (API) set that help administrators enforce compliance with health requirements for network access and communication. This paper contains an introduction to NAP and instructions for setting up a test lab to deploy NAP with the 802.1X enforcement method. The lab requires two server and two client computers, and an 802.1X compliant switch that supports the use of RADIUS tunnel attributes to specify the 802.1X client VLAN. With this test network, you can create and enforce client health requirements using NAP and the 802.1X features on your switch.
