802.1x Network Security is a protocol used for authenticating network access for 802.1x enabled ports. Generally it is used
in 802.11 wireless security communications. Wired network communications also use 802.1x enabled ports. A switch
network device called 'Authenticator' requires the 802.1x authentication to be connected to the MFP and requires that the
MFP responds with its credentials when polled. The authenticator transfers the MFP's credentials to an authentication
server called 'RADIUS' and finally RADIUS decides whether to permit the connection or not.
802.1x Network Security protocol uses some Extensible Authentication Protocols (EAP). Samsung MFPs support the
Server certificate validation is not supported. Each EAP requires a user ID and a Password as a credential.
