This initiative has been abandoned. The reason this is important is that PXE relies on DHCP to obtain the address of a TFTP server that will be used to provide information to finish the boot. This TFTP server can be used to provide a very wide range of upgrade information, such as BOIS upgrades, and to install controls that a corporation feels are necessary on equipment that is allowed to attach to the network. 1X environment. The problem is: How do you prevent unauthorized devices and still allow a PXE process to function?

10 will occur. 11. As described previously, a shared secret password has been configured on both devices. The Authentication Server will always issue an Access Challenge in response to the Access Request from a known Authenticator. The Access Challenge will contain a proposed EAP-Method. Either the Supplicant will accept the proposed method or reject it and usually propose an alternative. If it receives anAccess Reject,the Authenticator is nowina quandary. Ithasnot evengottenthatfar. The Authenticator can try other Authentication Servers, if any have been configured.

The response from the Supplicant must contain information regarding its identity. This will be encapsulated in the data portion of the EAP frame sent as a response. This packet is normally sent in the clear and can provide information regarding a legitimate user of the network. This information can be very useful to an intruder. There are no passwords included in this initial exchange—which is a good thing. The Authenticator will use the information, supplied by the Supplicant, in its initial contact with the Authentication Server.
