Standard IEEE 802.1X

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a global association that has committees for standardising technology, hardware and software. Standard 802.1X is a well-developed recommendation for the secure authentication of devices in networks. macmon supports this standard and aids its introduction and implementation:

  • Allows mixed operating modes – with or without 802.1X
  • Allows for device locating by communication with the network switches and access points
  • Allows integration of AD/LDAP and other identity sources
  • Dynamic and automatic rules
  • Easy to implement, even easier to run
  • Group-based configuration instead of extensive rules
  • Allows concepts for security zones to be established and implemented
