5.4. Packet Generator/Checker

The pattern generator can generate different data streams targeting the MACsec IP. The generated traffic towards the MACsec IP is in plaintext and it is encrypted when the traffic passes through the IP. The encrypted traffic is looped back at the Ethernet IP and decrypted in the MACsec IP. The pattern checker then verifies the decrypted data matches the original plaintext.
