SWLAN access points must implement MAC filtering.
Medium access control (MAC) filtering is a mechanism for ensuring that only authorized devices connect to the WLAN. While there are other methods to achieve similar protection with greater assurance, MAC filtering can be employed as a defense-in-depth measure.
Implement MAC filtering on the SWLAN access point.
Detailed Policy Requirements: MAC filtering must be implemented to enable the SWLAN AP to perform client device access control. Check Procedures: Verify MAC address filtering has been implemented on site SWLAN access points. Have the system administrator log into a sample of site SWLAN access points (2-3 devices) and show MAC address filtering has been enabled. Mark as a finding if MAC filtering has not been enabled.
