WWN zoning uses name servers in the switches to either allow or block access to particular World Wide Names (WWNs) in the fabric.
A major advantage of WWN zoning is the ability to recable the fabric without having to redo the zone information.
WWN zoning is susceptible to unauthorized access, as the zone can be bypassed if an attacker is able to spoof the World Wide Name of an authorized HBA.
