Configuring port security

Overview

Port security combines and extends 802.1X and MAC authentication to provide MAC-based network access control. This feature applies to networks, such as a WLAN, that require different authentication methods for different users on a port.

Port security provides the following functions:

·     Prevents unauthorized access to a network by checking the source MAC address of inbound traffic.

·     Prevents access to unauthorized devices or hosts by checking the destination MAC address of outbound traffic.

·     Controls MAC address learning and authentication on a port to make sure the port learns only source trusted MAC addresses.

A frame is illegal if its source MAC address cannot be learned in a port security mode or it is from a client that has failed 802.1X or MAC authentication. The port security feature automatically takes a predefined action on illegal frames. This automatic mechanism enhances network security and reduces human intervention.

 

 

NOTE:

As a best practice, use the 802.1X authentication or MAC authentication feature rather than port security for scenarios that require only 802.1X authentication or MAC authentication. For more information about 802.1X and MAC authentication, see "Configuring 802.1X" and "Configuring MAC authentication."

 

Port security features

NTK

The need to know (NTK) feature prevents traffic interception by checking the destination MAC address in the outbound frames. The feature ensures that frames are sent only to the following hosts:

·     Hosts that have passed authentication.

·     Hosts whose MAC addresses have been learned or configured on the access device.

Intrusion protection

The intrusion protection feature checks the source MAC address in inbound frames for illegal frames, and takes a predefined action on each detected illegal frame. The action can be disabling the port temporarily, disabling the port permanently, or blocking frames from the illegal MAC address for 3 minutes (not user configurable).

Port security modes

Port security supports the following categories of security modes:

·     MAC learning control—Includes two modes: autoLearn and secure. MAC address learning is permitted on a port in autoLearn mode and disabled in secure mode.

·     Authentication—Security modes in this category implement MAC authentication, 802.1X authentication, or a combination of these two authentication methods.

Upon receiving a frame, the port in a security mode searches the MAC address table for the source MAC address. If a match is found, the port forwards the frame. If no match is found, the port learns the MAC address or performs authentication, depending on the security mode. If the frame is illegal, the port takes the predefined NTK or intrusion protection action, or sends SNMP notifications. Outgoing frames are not restricted by port security's NTK action unless they trigger the NTK feature.

The maximum number of users a port supports equals the smaller value from the following values:

·     The maximum number of secure MAC addresses that port security allows.

·     The maximum number of concurrent users the authentication mode in use allows.

For example, if 802.1X allows more concurrent users than port security's limit on the number of MAC addresses on the port in userLoginSecureExt mode, port security's limit takes effect.

Table 1 describes the port security modes and the security features.

TIP

TIP:

·     userLogin specifies 802.1X authentication and port-based access control. userLogin with Secure specifies 802.1X authentication and MAC-based access control. Ext indicates allowing multiple 802.1X users to be authenticated and serviced at the same time. A security mode without Ext allows only one user to pass 802.1X authentication.

·     macAddress specifies MAC authentication.

·     Else specifies that the authentication method before Else is applied first. If the authentication fails, whether to turn to the authentication method following Else depends on the protocol type of the authentication request.

·     Or specifies that the authentication method following Or is applied first. If the authentication fails, the authentication method before Or is applied.

 

Controlling MAC address learning

·     autoLearn.

A port in this mode can learn MAC addresses. The automatically learned MAC addresses are not added to the MAC address table as dynamic MAC address. Instead, these MAC addresses are added to the secure MAC address table as secure MAC addresses. You can also configure secure MAC addresses by using the port-security mac-address security command.

A port in autoLearn mode allows frames sourced from the following MAC addresses to pass:

¡     Secure MAC addresses.

¡     MAC addresses configured by using the mac-address dynamic and mac-address static commands.

When the number of secure MAC addresses reaches the upper limit, the port transitions to secure mode.

·     secure.

MAC address learning is disabled on a port in secure mode. You configure MAC addresses by using the mac-address static and mac-address dynamic commands. For more information about configuring MAC address table entries, see Layer 2—LAN Switching Configuration Guide.

A port in secure mode allows only frames sourced from the following MAC addresses to pass:

¡     Secure MAC addresses.

¡     MAC addresses configured by using the mac-address dynamic and mac-address static commands.

Performing 802.1X authentication

·     userLogin.

A port in this mode performs 802.1X authentication and implements port-based access control. The port can service multiple 802.1X users. Once an 802.1X user passes authentication on the port, any subsequent 802.1X users can access the network through the port without authentication.

·     userLoginSecure.

A port in this mode performs 802.1X authentication and implements MAC-based access control. The port services only one user passing 802.1X authentication.

·     userLoginSecureExt.

This mode is similar to the userLoginSecure mode except that this mode supports multiple online 802.1X users.

·     userLoginWithOUI.

This mode is similar to the userLoginSecure mode. The difference is that a port in this mode also permits frames from one user whose MAC address contains a specific OUI.

In this mode, the port performs OUI check at first. If the OUI check fails, the port performs 802.1X authentication. The port permits frames that pass OUI check or 802.1X authentication.

 

 

NOTE:

An OUI is a 24-bit number that uniquely identifies a vendor, manufacturer, or organization. In MAC addresses, the first three octets are the OUI.

 

Performing MAC authentication

macAddressWithRadius: A port in this mode performs MAC authentication, and services multiple users.

Performing a combination of MAC authentication and 802.1X authentication

·     macAddressOrUserLoginSecure.

This mode is the combination of the macAddressWithRadius and userLoginSecure modes. The mode allows one 802.1X authentication user and multiple MAC authentication users to log in.

In this mode, the port performs 802.1X authentication first. By default, if 802.1X authentication fails, MAC authentication is performed.

However, the port in this mode processes authentication differently when the following conditions exist:

¡     The port is enabled with parallel processing of MAC authentication and 802.1X authentication.

¡     The port performs MAC-based access control for 802.1X authentication.

¡     The port is enabled with the 802.1X unicast trigger.

¡     The port receives a packet from a unknown MAC address.

Under such conditions, the port sends a unicast EAP-Request/Identity packet to the MAC address to initiate 802.1X authentication. After that, the port immediately processes MAC authentication without waiting for the 802.1X authentication result.

·     macAddressOrUserLoginSecureExt.

This mode is similar to the macAddressOrUserLoginSecure mode, except that this mode supports multiple 802.1X and MAC authentication users.

·     macAddressElseUserLoginSecure.

This mode is the combination of the macAddressWithRadius and userLoginSecure modes, with MAC authentication having a higher priority as the Else keyword implies. The mode allows one 802.1X authentication user and multiple MAC authentication users to log in.

In this mode, the port performs MAC authentication upon receiving non-802.1X frames. Upon receiving 802.1X frames, the port performs MAC authentication and then, if the authentication fails, 802.1X authentication.

·     macAddressElseUserLoginSecureExt.

This mode is similar to the macAddressElseUserLoginSecure mode except that this mode supports multiple 802.1X and MAC authentication users as the Ext keyword implies.

General guidelines and restrictions

When you configure port security, follow these restrictions and guidelines:

·     A Layer 2 Ethernet interface supports all port security settings in this chapter. A Layer 2 aggregate interface does not support the following port security settings:

¡     The port security mode of autolearn, secure, or userlogin-withoui.

¡     The secure MAC address configuration.

·     After a Layer 2 Ethernet interface is added to an aggregation group, the port security configuration on the port does not take effect.

·     Do not delete a Layer 2 aggregate interface if the interface has online 802.1X or MAC authentication users.

In this chapter, the term "port" refers to a Layer 2 Ethernet interface or a Layer 2 aggregate interface.

Enabling port security

Before you enable port security, disable 802.1X and MAC authentication globally.

When port security is enabled, you cannot enable 802.1X or MAC authentication, or change the access control mode or port authorization state. Port security automatically modifies these settings in different security modes.

To enable port security:

 

Step

Command

Remarks

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

N/A

2.     Enable port security.

port-security enable

By default, port security is disabled.

 

You can use the undo port-security enable command to disable port security. Because the command logs off the online users, make sure no online users are present.

Enabling or disabling port security resets the following security settings to the default:

·     802.1X access control mode is MAC-based.

·     Port authorization state is auto.

For more information about 802.1X authentication and MAC authentication configuration, see "Configuring 802.1X" and "Configuring MAC authentication."

Setting port security's limit on the number of secure MAC addresses on a port

You can set the maximum number of secure MAC addresses that port security allows on a port for the following purposes:

·     Controlling the number of concurrent users on the port.

For a port operating in a security mode (except for autoLearn and secure), the upper limit equals the smaller of the following values:

¡     The limit of the secure MAC addresses that port security allows.

¡     The limit of concurrent users allowed by the authentication mode in use.

·     Controlling the number of secure MAC addresses on the port in autoLearn mode.

For a port operating in autoLearn mode, you can set the maximum number of secure MAC addresses for all or specific VLANs. When the number of MAC addresses in a VLAN reaches the upper limit, intrusion detection is triggered.

The port security's limit on the number of secure MAC addresses on a port is independent of the MAC learning limit described in MAC address table configuration. For more information about MAC address table configuration, see Layer 2—LAN Switching Configuration Guide.

N/A

3.     Set the maximum number of secure MAC addresses allowed on a port.

port-security max-mac-count max-count  [ vlan [ vlan-id-list ] ]

By default, port security does not limit the number of secure MAC addresses on a port.

 

Setting the port security mode

Before you set a port security mode for a port, complete the following tasks:

·     Disable 802.1X and MAC authentication.

·     Verify that the port does not belong to an aggregation group or service loopback group.

·     If you are configuring the autoLearn mode, set port security's limit on the number of secure MAC addresses. You cannot change the setting when the port is operating in autoLearn mode.

When you set the port security mode, follow these guidelines:

·     You can specify a port security mode when port security is disabled, but your configuration cannot take effect.

·     Changing the port security mode of a port logs off the online users of the port.

·     Do not enable 802.1X authentication or MAC authentication on a port where port security is configured.

·     The device supports the URL attribute assigned by a RADIUS server in the following port security modes:

¡     mac-authentication.

¡     mac-else-userlogin-secure.

¡     mac-else-userlogin-secure-ext.

¡     userlogin-secure.

¡     userlogin-secure-ext.

¡     userlogin-secure-or-mac.

¡     userlogin-secure-or-mac-ext.

¡     userlogin-withoui.

During authentication, the HTTP or HTTPS requests of a user are redirected to the Web interface specified by the server-assigned URL attribute. After the user passes the Web authentication, the RADIUS server records the MAC address of the user and uses a DM (Disconnect Message) to log off the user. When the user initiates 802.1X or MAC authentication again, it will pass the authentication and come online successfully.

To redirect the HTTPS requests of port security users, specify the HTTPS redirect listening port on the device. For more information, see HTTP redirect in Layer 3—IP Services Configuration Guide.

·     For the userlogin-withoui mode, OUIs specified for user authentication are not supported if authorization VSI information is used.

To set the port security mode:

 

Step

Command

Remarks

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

N/A

2.     (Optional.) Set an OUI value for user authentication.

port-security oui index index-value mac-address oui-value

By default, no OUI values are configured for user authentication.

This command is required for the userlogin-withoui mode.

You can set multiple OUIs, but when the port security mode is userlogin-withoui, the port allows one 802.1X user and only one user that matches one of the specified OUIs.

3.     Enter interface view.

interface interface-type interface-number

To specify the autoLearn, secure, or userLoginWithOUI mode, you must enter Layer 2 Ethernet interface view.

4.     Set the port security mode.

port-security port-mode { autolearn | mac-authentication | mac-else-userlogin-secure | mac-else-userlogin-secure-ext | secure | userlogin | userlogin-secure | userlogin-secure-ext | userlogin-secure-or-mac | userlogin-secure-or-mac-ext | userlogin-withoui }

By default, a port operates in noRestrictions mode.

After enabling port security, you can change the port security mode of a port only when the port is operating in noRestrictions (the default) mode. To change the port security mode for a port in any other mode, first use the undo port-security port-mode command to restore the default port security mode.

 

Configuring port security features

Configuring NTK

The NTK feature checks the destination MAC addresses in outbound frames to allow a port to send only specific frames.

The NTK feature supports the following modes:

·     ntkonly—Forwards only unicast frames with authenticated destination MAC addresses.

·     ntk-withbroadcasts—Forwards only broadcast frames and unicast frames with authenticated destination MAC addresses.

·     ntk-withmulticasts—Forwards only broadcast frames, multicast frames, and unicast frames with authenticated destination MAC addresses.

·     ntkauto—Forwards broadcast frames, multicast frames, and unicast frames with authenticated destination MAC addresses only when the port has online users.

The NTK feature drops any unicast frame with an unknown destination MAC address. Not all port security modes support triggering the NTK feature. For more information, see Table 1.

To configure the NTK feature:

 

Step

Command

Remarks

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

N/A

2.     Enter interface view.

interface interface-type interface-number

N/A

3.     Configure the NTK feature.

port-security ntk-mode { ntk-withbroadcasts | ntk-withmulticasts | ntkauto | ntkonly }

By default, NTK is disabled on a port and all frames are allowed to be sent.

 

Configuring intrusion protection

Intrusion protection enables a device to take one of the following actions in response to illegal frames:

·     blockmac—Adds the source MAC addresses of illegal frames to the blocked MAC address list and discards the frames. All subsequent frames sourced from a blocked MAC address are dropped. A blocked MAC address is restored to normal state after being blocked for 3 minutes. The interval is fixed and cannot be changed.

·     disableport—Disables the port until you bring it up manually.

·     disableport-temporarily—Disables the port for a period of time. The period can be configured with the port-security timer disableport command.

To configure the intrusion protection feature:

 

Step

By default, intrusion protection is disabled.

4.     Return to system view.

quit

N/A

5.     (Optional.) Set the silence timeout period during which a port remains disabled.

port-security timer disableport time-value

By default, the port silence timeout is 20 seconds.

 

 

NOTE:

On a port operating in either macAddressElseUserLoginSecure mode or macAddressElseUserLoginSecureExt mode, intrusion protection is triggered only after both MAC authentication and 802.1X authentication fail for the same frame.

 

Configuring secure MAC addresses

Secure MAC addresses are configured or learned in autoLearn mode. If the secure MAC addresses are saved, they can survive a device reboot. You can bind a secure MAC address only to one port in a VLAN.

Secure MAC addresses include static, sticky, and dynamic secure MAC addresses.

Table 2 Comparison of static, sticky, and dynamic secure MAC addresses

Type

Address sources

Aging mechanism

Can be saved and survive a device reboot?

Static

Manually added (by using the port-security mac-address security command without the sticky keyword).

Not available.

The static secure MAC addresses never age out unless you perform any of the following tasks:

·     Manually remove these MAC addresses.

·     Change the port security mode.

·     Disable the port security feature.

Yes.

Sticky

·     Manually added (by using the port-security mac-address security command with the sticky keyword).

·     Converted from dynamic secure MAC addresses.

·     Automatically learned when the dynamic secure MAC feature is disabled.

By default, sticky MAC addresses do not age out. However, you can configure an aging timer or use the aging timer together with the inactivity aging feature to remove old sticky MAC addresses.

·     If only the aging timer is configured, the aging timer counts up regardless of whether traffic data has been sent from the sticky MAC addresses.

·     If both the aging timer and the inactivity aging feature are configured, the aging timer restarts once traffic data is detected from the sticky MAC addresses.

Yes.

The secure MAC aging timer restarts at a reboot.

Dynamic

·     Converted from sticky MAC addresses.

·     Automatically learned after the dynamic secure MAC feature is enabled.

Same as sticky MAC addresses.

No.

All dynamic secure MAC addresses are lost at reboot.

 

When the maximum number of secure MAC address entries is reached, the port changes to secure mode. In secure mode, the port cannot add or learn any more secure MAC addresses. The port allows only frames sourced from secure MAC addresses or MAC addresses configured by using the mac-address dynamic or mac-address static command to pass through.

Configuration prerequisites

Before you configure secure MAC addresses, complete the following tasks:

·     Enable port security.

·     Set port security's limit on the number of MAC addresses on the port. Perform this task before you enable autoLearn mode.

·     Set the port security mode to autoLearn.

·     Configure the port to permit packets of the specified VLAN to pass or add the port to the VLAN. Make sure the VLAN already exists.

By default, the dynamic secure MAC feature is disabled. Sticky MAC addresses can be saved to the configuration file. Once saved, they can survive a device reboot.

 

Setting port security's limit on the number of MAC addresses for specific VLANs on a port

Overview

Typically, port security allows the access of the following types of MAC addresses:

·     MAC addresses that pass MAC authentication, MAC addresses in the MAC authentication guest VLAN or MAC authentication critical VLAN, and MAC addresses in the MAC authentication guest VSI or MAC authentication critical VSI.

·     MAC addresses that pass 802.1X authentication, MAC addresses in the 802.1X guest VLAN, 802.1X Auth-Fail VLAN, or 802.1X critical VLAN, and MAC addresses in the 802.1X guest VSI, 802.1X Auth-Fail VSI, or 802.1X critical VSI.

This feature limits the number of MAC addresses that port security allows to access a port through specific VLANs. Use this feature to prevent resource contentions among MAC addresses and ensure reliable performance for each access user on the port. When the number of MAC addresses in a VLAN on the port reaches the upper limit, the device denies any subsequent MAC addresses in the VLAN on the port.

Configuration restrictions and guidelines

On a port, the maximum number of MAC addresses in a VLAN cannot be smaller than the number of existing MAC addresses in the VLAN. If the specified maximum number is smaller, the setting does not take effect.

Configuration procedure

To set port security's limit on the number of MAC addresses for specific VLANs on a port:

3.     Ignore the authorization information received from the authentication server.

port-security authorization ignore

By default, a port uses the authorization information received from the authentication server.

 

Configuring MAC move

Overview

Use this feature if you want to allow 802.1X and MAC authentication users to move between ports. MAC move allows 802.1X or MAC authentication users authenticated on one port to re-authenticate on another port and come online without having to first go offline from the original port.

If MAC move is disabled, an online 802.1X or MAC authentication user will not be able to pass authentication and come online from a new port until after they go offline from the original port.

In this feature, the port from which the user moves is called the source port and the port to which the user moves is called the destination port.

Configuration restrictions and guidelines

As a best practice to minimize security risks, enable MAC move only if user roaming between ports is required.

Configuration procedure

To configure MAC move:

 

Step

Command

Remarks

1.     Enter system view.

N/A

2.     Enable MAC move.

port-security mac-move permit

By default, MAC move is disabled.

 

Enabling the authorization-fail-offline feature

Overview

The authorization-fail-offline feature logs off port security users that have failed ACL authorization.

A user fails ACL authorization in the following situations:

·     The device fails to authorize the specified ACL to the user.

·     The server assigns a nonexistent ACL to the user.

This feature does not apply to users that have failed VLAN authorization. The device logs off these users directly.

You can also enable the quiet timer feature for 802.1X or MAC authentication users that are logged off by the authorization-fail-offline feature. The device adds these users to the 802.1X or MAC authentication quiet queue. Within the quiet timer, the device does not process packets from these users or authenticate them. If you do not enable the quiet timer feature, the device immediately authenticates these users upon receiving packets from them.

Configuration prerequisites

For the quiet timer feature to take effect, complete the following tasks:

·     For 802.1X users, use the dot1x quiet-period command to enable the quiet timer and use the dot1x timer quiet-period command to set the timer.

·     For MAC authentication users, use the mac-authentication timer quiet command to set the quiet timer for MAC authentication.

Configuration procedure

To enable the authorization-fail-offline feature:

 

Step

Command

Remarks

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

N/A

2.     Enable the authorization-fail-offline feature.

port-security authorization-fail offline [ quiet-period ]

By default, this feature is disabled, and the device does not log off users that have failed ACL authorization.

 

Enabling open authentication mode

Overview

This feature enables access users (802.1X or MAC authentication users) of a port to come online and access the network even if they use nonexistent usernames or incorrect passwords.

Access users that come online in open authentication mode are called open users. Authorization and accounting are not available for open users. To display open user information, use the following commands:

·     display dot1x connection open.

·     display mac-authentication connection open.

This feature does not affect the access of users that use correct user information.

Configuration restrictions and guidelines

When you configure open authentication mode, follow these restrictions and guidelines:

·     If global open authentication mode is enabled, all ports are enabled with open authentication mode regardless of the port-specific open authentication mode setting. If global open authentication mode is disabled, whether a port is enabled with open authentication mode depends on the port-specific open authentication mode setting.

·     The open authentication mode setting has lower priority than the 802.1X Auth-Fail VLAN and the MAC authentication guest VLAN. Open authentication mode does not take effect on a port if the port is also configured with the 802.1X Auth-Fail VLAN or the MAC authentication guest VLAN. The open authentication mode setting has lower priority than the 802.1X Auth-Fail VSI and the MAC authentication guest VSI. Open authentication mode does not take effect on a port if the port is also configured with the 802.1X Auth-Fail VSI or the MAC authentication guest VSI.

For information about 802.1X authentication and MAC authentication, see "802.1X overview," "Configuring 802.1X," and "Configuring MAC authentication."

By default, no free VLANs for port security exist on a port.

 

Applying a NAS-ID profile to port security

By default, the device sends its device name in the NAS-Identifier attribute of all RADIUS requests.

A NAS-ID profile enables you to send different NAS-Identifier attribute strings in RADIUS requests from different VLANs. The strings can be organization names, service names, or any user categorization criteria, depending on the administrative requirements.

For example, map the NAS-ID companyA to all VLANs of company A. The device will send companyA in the NAS-Identifier attribute for the RADIUS server to identify requests from any Company A users.

You can apply a NAS-ID profile to port security globally or on a port. On a port, the device selects a NAS-ID profile in the following order:

1.     The port-specific NAS-ID profile.

2.     The NAS-ID profile applied globally.

If no NAS-ID profile is applied or no matching binding is found in the selected profile, the device uses the device name as the NAS-ID.

For more information about the NAS-ID profile configuration, see "Configuring AAA."

Enabling the escape critical VSI feature for 802.1X and MAC authentication users

Overview

The escape critical VSI feature operates on VXLAN networks. It enables 802.1X and MAC authentication users to escape the authentication failure that occurs because the RADIUS server is malfunctioning or unreachable.

You can enable this feature temporarily to prevent 802.1X and MAC authentication service interruption while you are troubleshooting a malfunctioning or unreachable RADIUS server.

After the escape critical VSI feature is enabled on a port, the device performs the following operations when 802.1X or MAC authentication is triggered for a user:

1.     Dynamically creates an Ethernet service instance that matches the user's access VLAN and MAC address on the access port.

2.     Maps the Ethernet service instance to the 802.1X or MAC authentication critical VSI on the port.

The user can then come online without authentication and access resources in the VXLAN associated with the critical VSI.

The escape critical VSI feature does not affect 802.1X or MAC authentication users that have been online before this feature is enabled.

Configuration restrictions and guidelines

For the escape critical VSI feature to work correctly on a port, make sure the port does not have the following settings:

·     Web authentication.

·     Guest, Auth-Fail, or critical VLAN for 802.1X authentication.

·     Guest or critical VLAN for MAC authentication.

You can enable or disable this feature globally on all ports or on a per-port basis.

When this feature is enabled, online MAC authentication users that are assigned authorization URLs on the port might be logged off depending on the critical VSI configuration.

When you disable the escape critical VSI both globally and on a port, the device logs off the users in the critical VSIs for 802.1X and MAC authentication on that port. The users must perform authentication to come online again on that port.

The escape critical VSI feature does not take effect on a new 802.1X or MAC authentication user if any of the following conditions exists:

·     The 802.1X client and the device use different EAP message handling methods.

·     802.1X MAC address binding is enabled on the user's access port, but the MAC address of the 802.1X user is not bound to that port.

·     The user's MAC address is an all-zero, all-F, or multicast MAC address.

Configuration prerequisites

Before you enable the escape critical VSI feature on a port, configure an 802.1X critical VSI and a MAC authentication critical VSI on that port. For more information about critical VSI configuration, see "Configuring 802.1X" and "Configuring MAC authentication."

By default, SNMP notifications are disabled for port security.

 

Enabling logging for port security users

Overview

This feature enables the device to generate logs for port security users and send the logs to the information center. For the logs to be output correctly, you must also configure the information center on the device. For more information about information center configuration, see Network Management and Monitoring Configuration Guide.

Configuration restrictions and guidelines

As a best practice, disable this feature to prevent excessive output of logs for port security users.

userLoginWithOUI configuration example

Network requirements

As shown in Figure 2, a client is connected to the device through GigabitEthernet 1/0/1. The device authenticates the client with a RADIUS server in ISP domain sun. If the authentication succeeds, the client is authorized to access the Internet.

·     The RADIUS server at 192.168.1.2 acts as the primary authentication server and the secondary accounting server. The RADIUS server at 192.168.1.3 acts as the secondary authentication server and the primary accounting server. The shared key for authentication is name, and the shared key for accounting is money.

·     All users use the authentication, authorization, and accounting methods of ISP domain sun.

·     The RADIUS server response timeout time is 5 seconds. The maximum number of RADIUS packet retransmission attempts is 5. The device sends real-time accounting packets to the RADIUS server at 15-minute intervals, and sends usernames without domain names to the RADIUS server.

Configure GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 to allow only one 802.1X user and a user that uses one of the specified OUI values to be authenticated.

Troubleshooting port security

Cannot set the port security mode

Symptom

Cannot set the port security mode for a port.

Analysis

For a port operating in a port security mode other than noRestrictions, you cannot change the port security mode by using the port-security port-mode command.

Solution

To resolve the issue:

1.     Set the port security mode to noRestrictions.

[Device-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] undo port-security port-mode

2.     Set a new port security mode for the port (for example, autoLearn).

[Device-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] port-security port-mode autolearn

3.     If the issue persists, contact H3C Support.
