Overview of Cisco TrustSec
Cisco TrustSec technology uses software-defined segmentation to simplify the provisioning of security policies, to accelerate security operations, and to consistently enforce policy anywhere in the network. TrustSec is embedded technology in Cisco switches, routers, wireless, and security devices. It is a secure network architecture that extends security across the network from campus to branch to data center. TrustSec is the foundation for using the Network as an Enforcer and mitigates risk by reducing attack surface through better segmentation, whilst also increasing operational efficiency and making compliance goals easier to achieve.
In Cisco Prime Infrastructure, the TrustSec network service design enables you to choose preferred options for provisioning configurations to TrustSec-capable devices to enable 802.1X and other TrustSec functionality. You can configure wired 802_1x devices by creating TrustSec model-based configuration templates and choosing any one of the following navigation paths:
Services > TrustSec
Configuration > Templates > Features & Technologies > Security > TrustSec > Wired 802_1x
For the TrustSec 5.3 platform support list, see the Cisco TrustSec Release 5.3 System Bulletin.
