connectivity-association (MACsec Interfaces)


Hierarchy Level


Applies a connectivity association to an interface, which enables Media Access Control Security (MACsec) on that interface.

The point-to-point links are secured after security keys are matched at the endpoints of the links. If you enable MACsec by using the static connectivity association key (CAK) security mode, user-configured, preshared keys are matched. If you enable MACsec by using the static secure association key (SAK) security mode, user-configured static security association keys are matched.

When you enable MACsec using static CAK, you have to create and configure a connectivity association.


No connectivity associations are associated with any interfaces.
