include-sci (MACsec for MX Series)


Hierarchy Level


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.
