3.3.3.1 Set 'key chain'

Information

Define an authentication key chain to enable authentication for RIPv2 routing protocols.

Rationale:

This is part of the routing authentication process.

Impact:

Organizations should plan and implement enterprise security policies that require rigorous authentication methods for routing protocols. Configuring the proper authentication 'key-chain (name)' for RIPv2 protocols enforces these policies by restricting acceptable authentication between network devices.

Solution

Establish the key chain.

hostname(config)#key chain {<em>rip_key-chain_name</em>}

Default Value:

Not set
