Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Description

Configure the type of authentication for RIP route queries received on an interface.

Default

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

Options

type—Authentication type:

  • md5—Use the MD5 algorithm to create an encoded checksum of the packet. The encoded checksum is included in the transmitted packet. The receiving routing device uses the authentication key to verify the packet, discarding it if the digest does not match. This algorithm provides a more secure authentication scheme.
  • none—Disable authentication. If none is configured, the configured authentication key is ignored.
  • simple—Use a simple password. The password is included in the transmitted packet, which makes this method of authentication relatively insecure. The password can be from 1 through 16 contiguous letters or digits long.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.

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