Configuration commands

Configure MD5 authentication for RIPv2 and MD5 keychain for RIPv2 interfaces by using the following commands.

Syntax:

[no] ip rip authentication-type <none|text|md5>

Enable, disable or configure RIP on the VLAN interface.

When no is specified, the command disables RIP on the interface.

This command can be followed by a RIP configuration command. This is a VLAN context command that can be entered in a VLAN context or following the vlan enable/disable/configure RIP command on the VLAN interface.

none

Do not use authentication.

text

Use simple password.

MD5

Use MD5 authentication.

Using MD5

HP-Switch(vlan-10)# ip rip authentication-type md5

Using none

HP-Switch(vlan-10)# ip rip authentication-type none

Syntax:

[no] ip rip md5-auth-key-chain <keychain-name>

Used to enable, disable or configure Routing Internet Protocol (RIP) on the VLAN interface. When no is specified, the command disables RIP on the interface. The command can be followed by a RIP configuration command. This is a VLAN context command that can be entered in a VLAN context or following the vlan <vlan-id> command.

No authentication for RIP interfaces is the default configuration.

md5-auth-key-chain: Set the RIP MD5 authentication key chain (maximum 32 characters).

Using MD5-auth-key-chain

HP-Switch(vlan-10)# ip rip md5-auth-key-chain

[NOTE: ]

NOTE: simple and none authentication is supported on all RIP interfaces. MD5 authentication is supported for RIPv2 interfaces. With MD5 authentication, MD5-keyed digest is put into the packet instead secret password. This mechanism better protects RIPv2 routing message from any eavesdropping than simple or none.
