I understand that LACP (802.3ad) provides redundancy and bandwidth benefits, but one drawback I've seen is that security (specifically, 802.1X) cannot be applied on the ports. Is this a limitation due to LACP, 802.1X, device implementations of LACP/802.1X, or the switch implementation? Is there a timeline to provide those features together?
As a poor-man's security workaround, can MAC-Auth be implemented for ports with LACP? Even if it means authenticating both Eth0 and Eth1 mac addresses individually?
I appreciate any insights...
