Creates a named connectivity-association (CA) object that holds MAC Security (MACsec) key authentication data.
|connectivity-association||Secures connectivity provided between MACsec stations.|
|ca_name||Defines CA object name.|
|pre-shared-key||Selects static MACsec key consisting of both a CKN and CAK:|
Selects CA key name.
This public (non-secret) key name allows each of the MKA participants to select which connectivity association k ey (CAK) to use to process a received MACsec key agreement (MKA) protocol packets (MKPDU).
Sets the CA key name. Length allowed is 1–32 characters, entered as ASCII or an octet string preceded with 0x.
Sets the connectivity association key (CAK). If you are using 256-bit cipher suite, then the CAK must be 32 octets. The 128-bit cipher suite can use either a 16- or 32-octet CAK.
This is a long-lived secret key used to derive short-lived lower-layer keys (ICK, KEK, and SAK) which are used for key distribution and data encryption.
|cak||Sets the non-encrypted CAK value. Must be entered as an octet string (for example: “0x859e72f0…”). A 128-bit (16 octet) CAK requires 32 hexadecimal digits, and a 256-bit (32 octet) CAK requires 64 hexadecimal digits. These values are secret and should be generated off switch with a suitable pseudorandom number generator.|
|encrypted||Designates that secret key value is in encrypted format.|
|encrypted_cak||Sets the value for the secret key. The encrypted CAK value is generated by the show configuration macsec command for previously configured CAKs.|
Up to 64 unique CA profiles can be created.

This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 30.1.
This command is available on the following platforms.
NoteThe MACsec feature requires the installation of the MAC Security feature pack license.
