Hierarchy Level


Configure parameters for cryptographically generated addresses for Secure Neighbor Discovery.

The Secure Neighbor Discovery (SEND) Protocol uses cryptographically generated addresses (CGAs), as defined in RFC 3972, Cryptographically Generated Addresses, to ensure that the sender of a Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP) message is the “owner” of the claimed address. Each node must generate a public-private key pair before it can claim an address. The CGA is included in all outgoing neighbor solicitation and neighbor advertisement messages.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
