Organization: IEEE
Publication Date: 30 January 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 290
scope:

For the purpose of providing compatible authentication, authorization, and cryptographic key agreement mechanisms to support secure communication between devices connected by IEEE 802® Local Area Networks (LANs), this standard

a) Specifies a general method for provision of port-based network access control.

b) Specifies protocols that establish secure associations for IEEE Std 802.1AE™ MAC Security.

c) Facilitates the use of industry standard authentication and authorization protocols.

Purpose

IEEE 802 LANs are deployed in networks that convey or provide access to critical data, that support mission critical applications, or that charge for service. Protocols that configure, manage, and regulate access to these networks and network-based services and applications typically run over the networks themselves. Port-based network access control regulates access to the network, guarding against transmission and reception by unidentified or unauthorized parties, and consequent network disruption, theft of service, or data loss.
