      "The MAC security entity (SecY) MIB module. A SecY is a protocol
    shim providing MAC Security (MACsec) in an interface stack.

    Each SecY transmits MACsec protected frames on one or more Secure Channels
    (SCs) to each of the other SecYs attached to the same LAN and participating
    in the same Secure Connectivity Association (CA). The CA is a security
    relationship, that is established and maintained by key agreement protocols
    and supported by MACsec to provide full connectivity between its
    participants.  Each SC provides unidirectional point to multipoint
    connectivity from one participant to all the others and is supported by a
    succession of similarly point to multipoint Secure Associations (SAs). The
    Secure Association  Key (SAK) used to protect frames is changed as an SA is
    replaced by its (overlapping) successor so fresh keys can be used without
    disrupting a long lived SC and CA.

    Two different upper interfaces, a Controlled Port (for frames protected by
    MACsec, providing an instance of the secure MAC service) and an
    Uncontrolled Port (for frames not requiring protection, like the key
    agreement frames used to establish the CA and distribute keys) are
    associated with a SecY shim.
