Protect from connecting switch to the network

Hi guys,

 

Basic configuration deployed at our network for an endpoints is DOT.1x and Mac-Authentication. If i want to protect from connecting rouge switches, How should i do that ? Using 802.1x, Mac, Other method?

 

We have only Comware5, Comware7 Switches with Cisco small router (1920) at our branches.

 

Thank you.

Well, not a single bit of traffic will pass to the connected switch as long as it isn't authenticated. Rogue switches shouldn't be able to authenticate to your ports.

Re: Protect from connecting switch to the network

for my case, i connected a small hub (8 ports), the hub connected to my switch with 802.1x+ MAC auth.

 

the 1st user connect to the hub will get mac auth through the hub, but the next one authenticate will make the 1st user disconnected
