Hierarchy Level


Specifies the pre-shared key used to enable MACsec using static connectivity association key (CAK) security mode.

A pre-shared key includes a connectivity association key name (CKN) and a connectivity association key (CAK). A pre-shared key is exchanged between two devices at each end of a point-to-point link to enable MACsec using static CAK security mode. The MACsec Key Agreement (MKA) protocol is enabled after the pre-shared keys are successfully verified and exchanged. The pre-shared key—the CKN and CAK—must match on both ends of a link.


No pre-shared keys exist, by default.


The remaining statements are explained separately.
