Hi All,

Hope you’re doing well!


Just one small question – if MACsec support is on the roadmap for SD-Access? Or there are no plans to support it at all?


Any input would be very welcome

Hello Katerina,

Update: In Cisco SD-Access  2.2.2.x there is some support for MACsec, depending on the specific circumstances. Cisco partners can review this URL for more details:

Best regards, Jerome

Any new information? Link is dead by the way.

We support MACsec in SD-Access Fabric using templates or manual CLI.


  • Switch-to-switch MACsec in SD-Access has been validated using pre-shared key (PSK) key-chains.

  • Routing platforms have not been validated for MACsec in an SD-Access Fabric.

  • aes-256-cmac has been validated for the MACsec Keychain Cryptographic-Algorithm.

  • gcm-aes-256 has been validated for the MKA Policy Cipher-Suite.

  • Switch-to-host MACsec in SD-Access has been validated using a dynamically authorization result from ISE wherein the encryption policy is returned with the authorization result.
