802.1AR: Secure Device Identity

Local Area Networks (LANs) are often deployed in networks that provide publicly accessible services or cannot be completely physically secured. Protocols that configure, manage, and regulate access to these networks typically run over the networks themselves. Secure and predictable network operation depends on authenticating each device attached to and participating in the network, so that… read more »
