include-sci (MACsec for MX Series)



Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 15.1 for MX240, MX480, and MX960 routers.


Specifies that the SCI tag should be appended to each packet on a link that has enabled MACsec.

This option is used only when connecting a router to a host device that requires SCI tagging. SCI tags are eight octets long, so appending an SCI tag to all traffic on the link adds a significant amount of unneeded overhead.


SCI tagging is not enabled by default.
