What is port zoning?

Port zoning utilizes physical ports to define security zones. A users access to data is determined by what physical port he or she is connected to.

With port zoning, zone information must be updated every time a user changes switch ports. In addition, port zoning does not allow zones to overlap.

Port zoning is normally implemented using hard zoning, but could also be implemented using soft zoning.
