Abstract

   The IETF is engaged in an effort to analyze security of routing
   protocol authentication according to design guidelines discussed in
   RFC 6518.  Developing an operational and management model for routing
   protocol security that works with all the routing protocols will be
   critical to the deployability of these efforts.  This document gives
   recommendations to operators and implementors regarding management
   and operation of router authentication.  These recommendations will
   also assist protocol designers in understanding management issues
   they will face.
