Open source NAC system PacketFence 1.8.2 is out

PacketFence is a free and open source network access control (NAC) system. PacketFence is actively maintained and has been deployed in numerous large-scale institutions over the past years. It can be used to effectively secure networks – from small to very large heterogeneous networks.

PacketFence 1.8.2 is a maintenance release which focuses on stability and includes many bug fixes and several small enhancements.

Important changes since the previous release:

  • enhanced integration of expire_mode and VLAN isolation (thanks to Maikel van der Roest)
  • added many tests using Test::More
  • correct process ID is now written into PID file by pfmon and pfredirect
  • adjusted dependency checks in installer.pl and the RPM spec file
  • fixed SNMPv3 createUser command
  • better handling of non-english installations
  • removed unused icons and HTML files from Web Admin GUI
  • renamed passive mode into arp mode in configurator templates.
