Q. Is there a method to automate configuring 802.1X authentication settings for wired LANs for Windows XP or Windows Server 2003?
A. There is currently no method to automate the configuration of 802.1X settings for wired connections for clients running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. The Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies Group Policy extension in Windows Server 2003-based Active Directory domains only applies to wireless connections.
Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 support configuration of 802.1X settings for wired connections at the command line (through commands in the netsh lan context) and through Computer Configuration Group Policy.

Can you spoof the SID of a computer and join to the network or is there further verification that is done through the RADIUS server outside of just the machine or user SID? I am about to dig in and research this further but I figured this would be a great place to start.
