dc.description.abstract An architectural framework is proposed to secure the data link layer (Layer 2) in Internet protocol (IP) over Ethernet networks. In this architecture, a new security inter-layering concept, incorporating cryptographic Layer 2 identities, is introduced. Instead of traditional media access control (MAC) addresses, secure and flexible data link layer identifiers are utilized to securely bind Layer 2 and upper layers. In addition, to create security parameters and negotiate identifiers at the data link layer, a key establishment protocol is presented. Moreover, this architecture incorporates the IEEE 802.1AE standard (MACsec) and uses a key hierarchy similar to the IEEE 802.11i standard for future compatibility of wired and wireless networks. Finally, we provide a security analysis of the new data link layer security architecture. en_US
