Cyber Security:

  • Multilevel user passwords secure switch against unauthorized configuration
  • SSH/SSL – extends capability of password protection to add 128-bit encryption of
    passwords and data as they cross the network
  • Enable/disable ports – capability to disable ports so that traffic cannot pass
  • 802.1Q VLAN – provides the ability to logically segregate traffic between predefined
    ports on switches
  • MAC-based port security – provides the ability to secure ports on a switch so only
    specific devices / MAC addresses can communicate via a port
  • 802.1x port-based network access control – provides the ability to lock down ports
    on a switch so that only authorized clients can communicate via a port
  • RADIUS – authentication service using MD5 hash and providing centralized
    password management
  • SNMPv3 – encrypted authentication access security and data encryption (CBC-
    DES with 56-bit encryption key)
  • Secure Socket Layer – Web-based management using SSL with data encryption
    (128-bit encryption key)
  • RSA – 1,024-bit key for key management and key exchange
  • TACACS+ – Terminal Access Control and Accounting Services Client provides
    encrypted authentication and authorization
  • Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) – using CHAP (MD5 Hash) authentication service
  • SFTP – Secure File Transfer Protocol using SSH encryption
