DESCRIPTION
IEEE 802.1X is an IEEE Standard for port-based Network Access Control (“port” means the same physical

connection to the LAN infrastructure). It is part of the IEEE 802.1 group of networking protocols. It provides an authentication mechanism for devices to connect to a LAN, either establishing a connection or preventing the connection if authentication fails. IEEE 802.1X prevents what is called “port hi-jacking”; that is, when an unauthorized computer gets access to a network by getting to a network jack inside or outside a building. IEEE 802.1X is useful in, for example, network video applications since network cameras are often located in public spaces where a network jack can pose a security risk. In today’s enterprise networks, IEEE 802.1X is becoming a basic requirement for anything that is connected to a network.
