Many times an unknown node attaches themselves to our internal LAN with out the proper controls and then spreads a virus or has malware potential. It is not so much a problem with domain members, but rather at Layer 2-3 where the DHCP connection occurs and any machine can access the network.
I am trying to find out how best (efficient and cost effective) to control, or at the least be aware of new nodes connecting onto a large internal LAN. Restricting new unknown connections can come later.The LAN is made up of several geographic locations, segments and routers and is controlled by different areas. If anyone has a solution, I would really appreciate them sharing it.
