MACsec is a cryptographic function that operates on Layer 2, the international standard defined in the IEEE 802.1AE. As industries such as IoT(Internet of Things) devices are receiving attention recently are connected to the network and Internet traffic is increasing rapidly, and is exposed to the risk of a variety of Internet attacks. Traditional network security technologies were often made in Layer 3, such as IPsec. However, to be increased as rapidly as the current traffic situation is complicated, and became interested in the security function of protecting the entire traffic instead of for a specific application or protocol. It appeared as these technologies is technology MACsec technology to protect all traffic in Layer 2. In this paper, we propose a Layer 2 security technology adapter MACsec MACsec a technology that allows you to simply and easily add them to the existing Layer 2 networks.
