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 »

P802E: Recommended Practice for Privacy Considerations for IEEE 802 Technologies

This recommended practice specifies a privacy threat model for IEEE 802 technologies and provides recommendations on how to protect against privacy threats. The purpose of this recommended practice is to promote a consistent approach by IEEE 802 protocol developers to mitigate privacy threats identified in the specified privacy threat model and provide a privacy guideline…. read more »

802.1Xck:
Port-Based Network Access Control
Amendment 2: YANG Data Model

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

802.1AR-2009: Secure Device Identity

Full title: IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks–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… read more »

Security Task Group

The Security Task Group is a part of the IEEE 802.1 Working Group. For general information, see the 802.1 home page. The Security Task Group specifies functionality to support secure communication between  devices (end stations and bridges) attached to IEEE 802 LANs. IEEE Std 802.1X Port-Based Network Access Control specifies the use of industry standard authentication and… read more »
