802.1X-2010 - Revision of 802.1X-2004

For the purpose of providing compatible authentication, authorization, and cryptographic key agreement mechanisms to support secure communication between devices connected by 802 LANs, this standard: a) Specifies a general method for provision of port-based network access control. b) Specifies protocols that establish secure associations for IEEE Std 802.1AE MAC Security c) Facilitates the use of industry standard authentication and authorization protocols.

IEEE 802 Local Area Networks (LANs) are deployed in networks that convey or provide access to critical data, support mission critical applications, or charge for service. Protocols that configure, manage, and regulate access to these networks and network based services and applications 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 extended IEEE Std 802.1X to support IEEE Std 802.1AE MAC Security.

This PAR incorporates the work previously documented as P802.1af.
