MACsec

Media Access Control security (MACsec) secures each switch-to-switch link by encrypting all network traffic within an Ethernet LAN.

You can either use the pre-shared key (PSK) mode or the dynamic connectivity association key (CAK) mode.

For the PSK mode, you specify the CAK and the connectivity association name (CKN) for the PSK in the MACsec profile and then apply the profile to a switch port.

For the dynamic-CAK mode, you use a port access entity (PAE) to allow the interface to act as a supplicant or an authenticator:

  • When the interface acts as a supplicant, the PAE requests authentication from the RADIUS server before the interface can be accessed.

  • When the interface acts as an authenticator, the PAE enforces the authentication, which is provided by the RADIUS server, before the interface can be accessed.

The RADIUS server generates the master session key (MSK), and the CAK is derived from the MSK. You can use the same MACsec profile for both the supplicant and the authenticator.

To apply a MACsec profile to a port, you need to specify the port and MACsec profile, set the port security mode to macsec, and select the MACsec PAE mode:

  • If you want to use the PSK mode, select none because you do not need the PAE.

  • If you want to use the dynamic-CAK mode, select supp to have the PAE request authentication from the RADIUS server before the interface can be accessed or select auth to have the PAE enforce authentication before the interface can be accessed.

Notes:
  • SNMP is not supported.
  • The port-security-mode must be set to macsec for each interface that you want to apply MACsec to.
  • The MACsec profile must be applied at the port level.
  • FortiSwitchOS supports PSK mode and dynamic-CAK mode. Static secure association key (SAK) mode is not supported.

Configuring PSK-mode MACsec

To configure PSK-mode MACsec:
  1. Create the MACsec profile.
  2. Apply the MACsec profile to a port.
To create a MACsec profile for PSK mode:

end

Configuring dynamic-CAK MACsec

For the dynamic-CAK mode, you need to do the following before creating the MACsec profile:

  • Specify the certificate authority (CA) for the MACsec CAK.

    This is used in the set eap-tls-ca-cert <CA_certificate> command in the MACsec profile.

  • Import the client certificate to use for the MACsec CAK.

    This is used in the set eap-tls-cert <client_certificate> command in the MACsec profile.

  • Configure the RADIUS server to use for MACsec CAK.

    This is used in the set eap-tls-radius-server <name_of_RADIUS_server> command in the MACsec profile.

To specify the CA for the MACsec CAK:

config system certificate ca

edit <CA_name>

next

end

For example:

config system certificate ca

edit "MACsec_CA"

next

end

To import the client certificate to use for the MACsec CAK:

config system certificate local

edit <certificate_name>

set password <passwd>

next

end

For example:

config system certificate local

edit "MACsec_certificate"

set password ENC jVXPqKiU35+clW0peV401S3G3y1wIKPnU0203VPqOou5bZn3uUGem6YUipSHPqME5Lb83KS9n9AmFHhIf6AkZgaiXBLSWcEczSk95MuZcAl/rS1fl3DIJZ1ev3scj35gANo7bZZq16n+ufqP1QIE2RcUBmqF/ctCdAUxn4BbUthahvj1

next

end

To configure the RADIUS server used for MACsec CAK:

config user radius

edit <RADIUS_server_name>

set secret <server_password>

set server <domain_ipv4_ipv6>

next

end

For example:

config user radius

edit "radiusserver"

set secret ENC mAKp/cPwUvJktZnfY4aT3Xlz6n+hZEdhO1safouKrY2Vousxu9kGUGx9NEZWargxMQOfkF8GtVqjgrs0pGoS+dHZohqwK4HDtmHmoC9AYsgen9Vmzp1CI0N/5uMr+jjAHYFPdUdW6VBawCAGUeYtXOFL5l74Y5H+Q6zju3qqhE84DO0k

set server "10.105.252.125"

MACsec

Media Access Control security (MACsec) secures each switch-to-switch link by encrypting all network traffic within an Ethernet LAN.

You can either use the pre-shared key (PSK) mode or the dynamic connectivity association key (CAK) mode.

For the PSK mode, you specify the CAK and the connectivity association name (CKN) for the PSK in the MACsec profile and then apply the profile to a switch port.

For the dynamic-CAK mode, you use a port access entity (PAE) to allow the interface to act as a supplicant or an authenticator:

  • When the interface acts as a supplicant, the PAE requests authentication from the RADIUS server before the interface can be accessed.

  • When the interface acts as an authenticator, the PAE enforces the authentication, which is provided by the RADIUS server, before the interface can be accessed.

The RADIUS server generates the master session key (MSK), and the CAK is derived from the MSK. You can use the same MACsec profile for both the supplicant and the authenticator.

To apply a MACsec profile to a port, you need to specify the port and MACsec profile, set the port security mode to macsec, and select the MACsec PAE mode:

  • If you want to use the PSK mode, select none because you do not need the PAE.

  • If you want to use the dynamic-CAK mode, select supp to have the PAE request authentication from the RADIUS server before the interface can be accessed or select auth to have the PAE enforce authentication before the interface can be accessed.

Notes:
  • SNMP is not supported.
  • The port-security-mode must be set to macsec for each interface that you want to apply MACsec to.
  • The MACsec profile must be applied at the port level.
  • FortiSwitchOS supports PSK mode and dynamic-CAK mode. Static secure association key (SAK) mode is not supported.

Configuring PSK-mode MACsec

To configure PSK-mode MACsec:
  1. Create the MACsec profile.
  2. Apply the MACsec profile to a port.

Configuring dynamic-CAK MACsec

For the dynamic-CAK mode, you need to do the following before creating the MACsec profile:

  • Specify the certificate authority (CA) for the MACsec CAK.

    This is used in the set eap-tls-ca-cert <CA_certificate> command in the MACsec profile.

  • Import the client certificate to use for the MACsec CAK.

    This is used in the set eap-tls-cert <client_certificate> command in the MACsec profile.

  • Configure the RADIUS server to use for MACsec CAK.

    This is used in the set eap-tls-radius-server <name_of_RADIUS_server> command in the MACsec profile.

To specify the CA for the MACsec CAK:

config system certificate ca

edit <CA_name>

next

end

For example:

config system certificate ca

edit "MACsec_CA"

next

end

To import the client certificate to use for the MACsec CAK:

config system certificate local

edit <certificate_name>

set password <passwd>

next

end

For example:

config system certificate local

edit "MACsec_certificate"

set password ENC jVXPqKiU35+clW0peV401S3G3y1wIKPnU0203VPqOou5bZn3uUGem6YUipSHPqME5Lb83KS9n9AmFHhIf6AkZgaiXBLSWcEczSk95MuZcAl/rS1fl3DIJZ1ev3scj35gANo7bZZq16n+ufqP1QIE2RcUBmqF/ctCdAUxn4BbUthahvj1

next

end

To configure the RADIUS server used for MACsec CAK:

config user radius

edit <RADIUS_server_name>

set secret <server_password>

set server <domain_ipv4_ipv6>

next

end

For example:

config user radius

edit "radiusserver"

set secret ENC mAKp/cPwUvJktZnfY4aT3Xlz6n+hZEdhO1safouKrY2Vousxu9kGUGx9NEZWargxMQOfkF8GtVqjgrs0pGoS+dHZohqwK4HDtmHmoC9AYsgen9Vmzp1CI0N/5uMr+jjAHYFPdUdW6VBawCAGUeYtXOFL5l74Y5H+Q6zju3qqhE84DO0k

set server "10.105.252.125"

next

end

To apply a dynamic-CAK MACsec profile to a port that will act as the PAE supplicant:

config switch interface

edit <port_name>

config port-security

set port-security-mode macsec

set macsec-pae-mode supp

set macsec-profile <MACsec_profile_name>

end

next

end

For example:

config switch interface

edit "port25"

set auto-discovery-fortilink enable

set snmp-index 25

config port-security

set macsec-pae-mode supp

set macsec-profile "dynamiccak"

set port-security-mode macsec

end

next

end

To apply a dynamic-CAK MACsec profile to a port that will act as the PAE authenticator:

config switch interface

edit <port_name>

config port-security

set port-security-mode macsec

set macsec-pae-mode auth

set macsec-profile <MACsec_profile_name>

end

next

end

For example:

config switch interface

edit "port25"

set auto-discovery-fortilink enable

set snmp-index 25

config port-security

set macsec-pae-mode auth

set macsec-profile "dynamiccak"

set port-security-mode macsec

end

next

end

Viewing the MACsec details

To view the MACsec status for a specific port:

diagnose switch macsec status <port_name>

To view the MACsec traffic statistics for a specific port:

diagnose switch macsec statistics <port_name>

To view the creation and deletion of secure associations:

diagnose debug kernel level 8

Clearing the MACsec statistics

To clear all MACsec statistics on a single interface:

execute macsec clearstat interface <interface_name>

For example:

execute macsec clearstat interface port15

Resetting the MACsec statistics

To reset the MACsec session on a single interface on the server side or the client side:

execute macsec reset interface <interface_name>

For example:

execute macsec reset interface port15

Changing the link status

This command applies to the dynamic-CAK mode.

To change the link status and reset the MACsec session on a single interface for both the server side and the client side:

execute macsec toggle interface <interface_name>

For example:

execute macsec toggle interface port5
