The IEEE has ratified the 802.1AE-2006 Media Access Control Security (MACsec) standard which offers connectionless user data confidentiality, frame data integrity, and data origin authenticity for LANs, metropolitan optical networks and other applications.
The LLP-06 offers the industry's lowest constant latency MACsecPDU processing solution and is interoperable with Layer-1 devices (PHYs) and Layer-2 devices (Ethernet switches).
The data plane protocol defines the frame format for data encapsulation, encryption, and authentication using the GCM-AES high performance authenticating cipher. Elliptic's LLP-06 is embedded in the data encapsulation -decapsulation module within the MAC Client to perform the tasks associated with the MACsec standard.
