An overlay or L3 enforcer is a Juniper firewall (either ScreenOS or Junos based). It enforces network access at layer 3 of the OSI model.

Layer 2 enforcment is done at the switch or wireless access point level and uses the 802.1X authentiction protocol suite to authenticate a user BEFORE they get any network access.

Hope that clears things up a bit.

Thanks
