This document defines a portion of the Management Information Base
(MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based
internets. In particular, it defines objects for managing the
operation of Port Access Control, based on the specification
contained in Clause 8 and Clause 9 of the IEEE 802.1X standard. This
clause includes a MIB module that is SNMPv2 SMI compliant.
This standard defines a mechanism for Port-based network access
control that makes use of the physical access characteristics of
IEEE 802 LAN infrastructures in order to provide a means of
authenticating and authorizing devices attached to a LAN port that
has point-to-point connection characteristics, and of preventing
access to that port in cases in which the authentication and

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
