How to set the user to log in with a fixed MAC address,other addresses are not allowed to log in

Some company consider the security factor, they want to limit user only can login server with a fixed MAC address, forbid him to login from other MAC address.

Hope domino server can realize it.

    Who and where are you going to manage MAC addresses then?
    Sorry, we are not going to implement this.

    Agree with the development function, we often found that users randomly copy ID login, security policy will lead to password confusion, administrators often need to re-register processing, hope to bind MAC address, can prevent users randomly copy ID login problem!

    This does not make any sense as the MAC address is only valid in your local LAN segment.

    As soon as there is any router involved, Domino sees only the MAC of the router.

    Typically Domino is the only service on a given piece of hardware / virtualware. Where I've seen customers do this, the approach is to block other IPs at the firewall, not at Domino. This prevents access at a much higher level than an individual piece of software. This is a much more secure and, in my opinion, better practice approach, using the right tools to control this business requirement.

    In my opinion, there is no reason this needs to be delegated to Domino.
