    For wired LANs, the 802.1X Authenticator usually built into the 802.1X-capable switch, and the switch ensures that 802.1X frames are not forwarded beyond the built-in Authenticator.

    If you've created a LAN where 802.1X frames can reach multiple Authenticators, you have not created a proper 802.1X-compliant LAN.
