Security Task Group Agenda

The Security Task Group agenda gives precedence to formally submitted maintenance requests on published standards, approved projects, PAR (Project Authorization Request) development previously approved by 802.1, and other matters arising, in that order. Requests for agenda items or time to present should be emailed to the Task Group chair Mick Seaman. Each presentation must be… read more »

802.1X: Port-Based Network Access Control

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… read more »

Full title: IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks–Media Access Control (MAC) Security–Amendment 1: Galois Counter Mode–Advanced Encryption Standard–256 (GCM-AES-256) Cipher Suite This amendment to IEEE Std 802.1AE–2006 specified the GCM-AES-256 Cipher Suite in addition to the mandatory to implement Default Cipher Suite, GCM-AES-128. It added references to the MACsec Key Agreement Protocol (MKA)… read more »

802.1AE: MAC Security (MACsec)

Full title: IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks–Media Access Control (MAC) Security IEEE 802 Local Area Networks (LANs) are deployed in networks that support mission-critical applications and a wide variety of devices, implemented and administered by different organizations, and serving customers with different economic interests. The protocols that configure, manage, and regulate access… read more »

P802.1Xck: Port-Based Network Access Control—Amendment 2:
YANG Data Model

This amendment specifies a YANG data model that allows configuration and status reporting for port-based network access control in the scenarios described in Clause 7 of this standard and Clause 11 of IEEE Std 802.1AE, using the information model already specified in clause 12.9 of IEEE Std 802.1X. This amendment will also resolve any maintenance… read more »
