In this paper, the link security module developed by draft standard of IEEE 802.1AE in order to protect all frames from a listening or attacking of a malicious user at an EPON link. And it applied at an EPON OLT (optical line terminal)/ONU (optical network unit) and is provided a link security about the maximum 64 ONUs. It also used a 128 bits GCM-AES (Galois/counter mode-advanced encryption standard) of an authenticated encryption mode that was mandatory-to-implement crypto- algorithm in draft standard. So, link security module can provide the user data confidentiality and frame data integrity, and data origin authenticity to subscribers, and support a link security at the maximum 2 Gbps EPON using the parallel CTR-AES (counter-AES) in the GCM-AES
