In our organization there are testers who are trying to check the Mac Sec encrupted packets by snooping the packets in the wire. The idea is to check if the Packets have been encrypted when it is on the wire. So we came up with any idea of connecting a switch inbetween Mac Sec enabled devices and then configured the same VLAN to send packets to STC. But since the switch in between does not have Mac Sec feature capability the Port on MacSec Switch does not come up when connected. Since it is a 10Gig Fibre connection, option of using Layer 1 Hub is not going to help. We tried other solutions like a Fiber Channel Switch which again failed because of its limitation. We also tried connecting ALU switch in between with epipe configured to transfer the packets ( again failed as the Mac sec Switch port did not come up ). Please refer to the below diagram for clarification on the topo we used.
