802.1X Workshop

802.1X WORKSHOP,
30-31 March 2004,
Amsterdam,
TERENA Offices


SURFnet in collaboration with TERENA organised two one-day workshops about theory, set-up and use of 802.1X technology.
SURFnet has gained experience in setting up national and European infrastructure for network access based on the 802.1X standard as well as practical knowledge of the implementation of this standard in local networks.
The workshop, funded by the Freeband project, was open for European NRENs, SURFnet and Freeband community.

The programme, which was the same on both days, provided an unique opportunity to learn what 802.1x is, where and how it can be used and how it can be implemented to secure the access to your network.

The workshop was very interactive with ample space for questions and practical work.

A report of the workshop is available here.
