Item Name Description
Priority (Mandatory) A priority value of the security policy. It must be an integer in the range of 0 to 255.
When multiple security policies are set, if the interface registered on the device is connected to OpenFlow Switches or AMF Members, it is determined whether the security policy with the lowest priority value matches in order.
Network ID of the network which AMF Security assigns the device to.
Maximum 100 IDs of the existing networks are shown in the dropdown list. If you enter text in the field, Network IDs in the dropdown list are dynamically filtered to the ones which contain the input text in Network ID, VLAN ID or Note (it shows maximum 100 elements). From the dropdown list, select a Network ID.
If the registered device is connected to OpenFlow Switches or AMF Members, it is connected to the VLAN subnet configured in the network. If the network is not registered in the device (if this setting is blank or the VLAN ID is set to 0 in the network security policy setting), the OpenFlow Switch uses untagged VLAN (subnet without VLAN) and AMF Member Is connected to the VLAN set for the AMF Member. The connection to the VLAN subnet is realized by sending as a tagged VLAN with the set VLAN ID when it is sent to the upper network of the connected OpenFlow Switches and AMF Members.
You have to add the network before assigning a device to the network. Refer to Policy Settings > Add Network for the instruction on how to register a network.
Location Specify a location where the device can access the network.
Maximum 100 IDs of the existing locations are shown in the dropdown list. If you enter text in the field, location IDs in the dropdown list are dynamically filtered to the ones which contain the input text in Location ID or Note (it shows maximum 100 elements). From the dropdown list, select a Location ID.
If you specify Location, the UnAuth Group can access the network only from OpenFlow Switches and AMF Members in the location.
If you do not specify Location, the UnAuth group can access the network from all OpenFlow Switches and AMF Members.
You have to add the location before specifying it for a device. Refer to Policy Settings > Add Location for the instructions on how to add locations.
