This paper presents the results of an independent comparison of security and intrusion detection features implemented in fibre channel fabric switches. These switches are a key element in optical storage area networks. Using an enterprise testbed with mainframe servers and multiterabyte storage, we evaluate four major switch platforms and compare the results. We also consider security concerns for optical channel extension into the metropolitan area network (MAN) using wavelength division multiplexing.
