Huh? What do you mean by that?
If you don't have Cisco switches, this discussion is pointless. If
you do have Cisco switches, they will authenticate the MAC address as a
known device. This is no different than authenticating the
user/password as a known user.
I have no idea what you mean by "unregister MAC address". There is no
unregistering process needed, and I didn't talk about one.
I have no idea what you mean by the "MAC address table getting messy".
I made no mention of a MAC address table. I made no mention of updates
to a MAC address table.
You seem to have assumed a LOT about how MAC authentication bypass
works. Forget all of those assumptions. They're wrong.
MAC authentication just works by authenticating the MAC address. Just
like users. Do normal users have to unregister? Does the user/password
table get "messy" after people authenticate?
