Port-Based Network Access

If an authentication algorithm, such as the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) or Robust Security Network Association (RSNA) algorithms, is based on the IEEE 802.1X protocol, a port must be created and authorized before the 802.11 station can send or receive media access control (MAC) service data unit (MSDU) packets. For more information about ports and port access, refer to Clause 6 of the IEEE 802.1X-2001 standard.

The following topics describe the procedures involved in port management:

Port Creation

Port Deletion
