associate-mac-sec-key

Description

Associates a MAC Security (MACsec) Connection Key Name (CKN)/ Connectivity Association Key (CAK) pair with an Direct Connect dedicated connection.

You must supply either the secretARN, or the CKN/CAK (ckn and cak ) pair in the request.

For information about MAC Security (MACsec) key considerations, see MACsec pre-shared CKN/CAK key considerations in the Direct Connect User Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  associate-mac-sec-key
--connection-id <value>
[--secret-arn <value>]
[--ckn <value>]
[--cak <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--connection-id (string)

The ID of the dedicated connection (dxcon-xxxx), or the ID of the LAG (dxlag-xxxx).

You can use DescribeConnections or DescribeLags to retrieve connection ID.

--secret-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the MAC Security (MACsec) secret key to associate with the dedicated connection.

You can use DescribeConnections or DescribeLags to retrieve the MAC Security (MACsec) secret key.

If you use this request parameter, you do not use the ckn and cak request parameters.

--ckn (string)

The MAC Security (MACsec) CKN to associate with the dedicated connection.

You can create the CKN/CAK pair using an industry standard tool.

The valid values are 64 hexadecimal characters (0-9, A-E).

If you use this request parameter, you must use the cak request parameter and not use the secretARN request parameter.

--cak (string)

The MAC Security (MACsec) CAK to associate with the dedicated connection.

You can create the CKN/CAK pair using an industry standard tool.

The valid values are 64 hexadecimal characters (0-9, A-E).

If you use this request parameter, you must use the ckn request parameter and not use the secretARN request parameter.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
