Full title: IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks–Port-Based Network Access Control–Amendment 1: MAC Security Key Agreement Protocol (MKA) Extensions
This amendment to IEEE Std 802.1X–2010, added MKA capabilities made possible by the IEEE Std 802.1AEbw-2013 addition of extended packet numbering Cipher Suites to IEEE Std 802.1AE MAC Security. Secure connectivity association (CA) members can now temporarily suspend MKA operation without causing protocol timeouts that would disrupt secure data transfer, thus allowing in-service control plane software upgrades.
