MacSec EAP-FAST support

Support for Media Access Control Security (MACsec) with static keys was added in EOS-4.15.4. This feature brings support for dynamic Mac Security keys. To derive Mac Security keys dynamically, both peers must be configured for 802.1x authentication. One peer must be configured to be the ‘Authenticator’ and the other peer is the ‘Supplicant’. Upon a successful 802.1X authentication sequence between the peers, keying material is generated by both the authenticator and the supplicant. This keying material is then used to derive Mac Security keys to establish a MACSec Key Agreement (MKA) protocol session. The following diagram depicts a typical Mac...
