Technical Summary The TCP-MD5 option is most commonly used to secure BGP sessions between routers. However, changing the long-term key is difficult, since the change needs to be synchronized between different organizations. This document describes single-ended strategies that will permit (mostly) unsynchronized key changes. Working Group Summary This is an individual effort. It is not affiliated with any IETF Working Group. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
