Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, isis mailing list <email@example.com>, isis chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) Cryptographic Authentication' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) Cryptographic Authentication ' <draft-ietf-isis-rfc3567bis-04.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IS-IS for IP Internets Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ross Callon and David Ward. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-isis-rfc3567bis-04.txt
Technical Summary This document describes the authentication of Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) Protocol Data Units (PDUs) using the Hashed Message Authentication Codes - Message Digest 5 (HMAC-MD5) algorithm as found in RFC 2104. IS-IS is specified in International Standards Organization (ISO) 10589, with extensions to support Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) described in RFC 1195. The base specification includes an authentication mechanism that allows for multiple authentication algorithms. The base specification only specifies the algorithm for cleartext passwords. This document replaces RFC 3567. Working Group Summary This is one of a series of seven documents that were originally published as informational for historic reasons, and are being updated to proposed standard. There is strong consensus in the WG for this upgrade. Document Quality There are multiple implementations. I am not sure about deployment. Personnel Chris Hopps and Dave Ward have been jointly shepherding this series of seven documents. Ross Callon is the responsible AD. RFC Editor Note The table in Section 5 (IANA considerations) the line that begins "HMAC-MD5 Authentication", should reference this document (at least in the IANA's version of the table). IANA Note See RFC editor's note.
