After much poking and prodding from various colleagues and customers, I’m finally hopping back on the blog train.

By this point everyone seems to refer to me as ‘The 1X geek’, probably because of my evangelical technical overviews and implementations of the standard. I s’pose because of this, in the past week several folks have asked me to check out recent articles by Mike Fratto (New Protocols Secure Layer 2, October 4) and follow up blog by Richard at Tao Security (Hop by Hop Encryption: Needed?) about 802.1X and the upcoming revision of the standard due in 2009.

I can tell you Mike always does his homework, and those of us interested in 1X get our technical details straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. Mike is no exception and I’m always comfortable referring readers to his blogs and articles for information.

The Clearing Up 802.1X Series Begins…
