RIP Keychain Configuration

Key chains are used for MD5-based HMAC authentication, configured in config-rip-if mode (RIP Interface Configuration).

To configure Keychain settings in RIP, start in config-rip mode and use the key-chain <name> command to enter config-rip-key-chain mode.

tnsr(config-rip)# key-chain <name>
tnsr(config-rip-key-chain)#

config-rip-key-chain mode contains the following commands:

key <key-id> string <key-string>
key-id

A numeric identifier for the key within this chain, can be any integer value from 0-2147483647.

key-string

A string containing the contents of the key. This string must match between all nodes using this key-chain.
