Last updated on OCTOBER 23, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect - Version N/A to N/A [Release 1.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this is to provide a simple guide on how to configure MACsec in OCI.  You can configure FastConnect to use MACsec (IEEE standard 802.1AE) to protect network-to-network connections on Layer 2.

To enable MACsec, you will need to use an advanced encryption standard (AES) encryption algorithm. The two connected networks exchange and verify security keys, and then establish a secure bidirectional link.

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Vault service securely stores the encrypted keys used by the FastConnect circuit leveraging the MACsec security feature.
