abstract
As the size and diversity of computer networks increases, management becomes a more tedious and challenging task for network administrators. Interconnected devices require different types of access to maintain functionality; however, access must also be constrained to ensure security. Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) have become a core technology for securely interconnecting devices in a computer network since they can associate devices with various groups, where each group can have different access rights. Although VLANs offer the flexibility of different groups and various access rights, finding the smallest, most manageable number of VLANs to securely provide necessary interconnections is difficult.
