P802.1X-Rev: Port-Based Network Access Control (Revision)

Full title: IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks–Port-Based Network Access Control

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.

This revision project incorporated IEEE Std 802.1X-2010 and its amendments IEEE Std 802.1Xbx and IEEE Std 802.1Xck. It also addressed errors and omissions in the description of existing functionality. A detailed description of changes made during the editorial roll-up process is included in the Editor’s Foreword to draft 1.0 of the revision.
