Ahhh, Azeem ... then what you want is not AAA, but either Network Access
Control (NAC) or IP Access Management (IPAM). When you said you wanted
an AAA solution, most of us would think RADIUS, or some such.

You may want to check out products from Infoblox
(http://www.infoblox.com). No, I am not an employee or reseller for
Infoblox. 

I am sure you can setup something similar in Linux, but since you are
probably just getting started (and I assume you probably have a
deadline) an appliance solution is probably a better choice because it
is easier to understand, setup and maintain.
