Delegated Guest Access to Secure Networks

Wednesday, October 19 | 5:55p.m. - 7:10p.m. | Exhibit Hall WB1, Table 04
Session Type: Professional Development
Security on advanced wired and wireless networks is a concern for all institutions. Intruders can cause serious operational, legal, and productivity problems. Requiring user authorization can improve security, but creates problems for legitimate uses such as visitors. This session will present a novel and secure guest access control solution implemented using 802.1x, public key infrastructure (PKI), and delegation.
