RIP Keychain ConfigurationΒΆ

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-frr-rip mode and use the key-chain <name> command to enter config-rip-key-chain mode.

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

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

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

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


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