There is no MACsec support with the current 10.4 release.

As this is a roadmap question, please contact your local Aruba SE.

Thanks.

Re: MACSec Support on ArubaOS CX switches

Thanks.

Understood, no roadmap questions here ;-)
By the way, it's sad that there is no MACSec support yet.
Severely impedes deployment of the new devices.

Re: MACSec Support on ArubaOS CX switches

Does anyone know if its been put in the plans to add MACSec.   I mentioned this to my SE 6 months ago.  Doesn't make sense to go from AOS switches that support MACSec to CX switches that do not.   Seems like a rush to market approach.  As a customer I was looking forward to using CX with Netedit to have better control of my configs but without MACSec I would have to maintain my AOS systems and manage two completely different platforms along with the different management tools for those and templates.

Re: MACSec Support on ArubaOS CX switches

As Vincent said, this is not the place to discuss roadmap topics, unfortunately.

 

All I can I add is that I contacted my Aruba SE, and we addressed the issue to Aruba product management.

 

Regarding CX in general, I find it a little, lets say, "unbalanced".
In some areas, it's way ahead of ArubaOS, while in other areas, it lacks functionality that has been around for years.

Well, so far, I am not impressed.

 

NetEdit is another sad issue, as it only supports CX if you want full functionality.
AOS devices have the same level of support as any third party device, if I am not mistaken.

That's a disappointing product strategy from a customer's point of view.
