LAN Security - VLAN's, etc.

From this:

They mention several threats that I thought I would protect my network against. I have a few questions for anybody who can answer them.

1. They mention using port security to prevent a mac flood. Problem is, that on my 6513 it says that it can only learn 1024 mac addresses when I apply port security. This is not enough for the "specified" 3 per port when using IP phones. Any idea how to get around that?

2. The document mentions to turn off native vlans to prevent a "nested vlan" attack. Problem is that when I turn of native vlan's for my Aironet 1200 AP's they stop passing traffic. Also, on my other trunk links - it just makes the native vlan = vlan 1. Isn't that a bigger threat?

3. On that note - how do I change the management VLAN to be something OTHER than 1?

THANKS to anybody who can answer either all or part of my concerns.


Re: LAN Security - VLAN's, etc.

This is regarding your question on changing the mangement VLAN in a wireless Lan.

You can define static management interface parameters using the configuration wizard. You can also verify or change management interface parameters by following these steps:

Step 1 Enter show interface detailed management to view the current management interface settings. Note that the Management Interface uses the controller's burned-in MAC address.

Step 2 Enter config wlan disable wlan-number to disable each WLAN that is enabled.

Step 3 Enter these commands to define management interfaces:

config interface address management ip-addr ip-netmask [gateway]

config interface vlan management {vlan-id | 0}

Enter 0 for untagged.

config interface port management physical-ds-port-number

config interface dhcp management ip-address-of-primary-dhcp-server [ip-address-of-secondary-dhcp-server]

config interface acl management access-control-list-name

Note To create ACLs, follow the instructions in the controller online help.

Step 4 Enter show interface detailed management to verify that the controller saved your changes. \
