Creating a block timeout for mac addresses for malicious behavior

L0 Member

Hello,

 

I was interested if there was a way to block a mac address of a device for malicious behavior? Bacially if i have a user on a guest connection and they are searching things they shouldnt, they could be blocked for 5 minutes or whatever and then return to the network. I know its a strange request but I was curious to see if it could be done.

 

Thanks 🙂

MAC address blocking is not a good way to control users as it is easy to spoof. For the guest control, you could implement a separate VLAN, basic security policy (allowing a minimum for internet browsing),  as well as implement a URL filtering with other security profiles.
