What is port zoning?

Unread postby rajeevmahura » Sat Jul 05, 2008 11:00 am

Port zoning utilizes physical ports to define security zones. A user’s access to data is determined by what physical port he or she is connected to.
With port zoning, zone information must be updated every time a user changes switch ports. In addition, port zoning does not allow zones to overlap.
Port zoning is normally implemented using hard zoning, but could also be implemented using soft zoning.
