I have a question on 802.1x.
h1 is a legitimate user while h2 is not. h1 powers up while h2 is off. h1 uses 802.1x and gets authenticated as a result switch( authenticator) transitions the port to authorized state
My question is if h2 powers up , will it not be able to access the network without going through any authentication because the f1/1 is already in authorized state?
thanks and have a great week
That largely depends on the port configuration - you can define what mode your port operates under for 802.1x.
This link has a lot of good info on the various modes and what remifications each has on the authC/authZ process:
Labbing it up and testing with the various deployment models(single host, host & phone, multi-host, etc) is usually a good idea - and in some cases my clients have had to set different ports in different modes depending on their use. Trying to nail down a single standard can be tough.
