Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Description

Enable authentication and specify the authentication scheme for IS-IS. If you enable authentication, you must specify a password by including the authentication-key statement.

Default

If you do not include this statement and the authentication-key statement, IS-IS authentication is disabled.

Options

authentication—Authentication scheme:

  • md5—Use HMAC authentication in combination with MD5. HMAC-MD5 authentication is defined in RFC 2104, HMAC: Keyed-Hashing for Message Authentication.
  • simple—Use a simple password for authentication. The password is included in the transmitted packet, making this method of authentication relatively insecure. We recommend that you not use this authentication method.

routing-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
