Implementations conforming to this specification MUST support
authentication for PIM-SM link-local messages. Implementations
conforming to this specification MUST support HMAC-SHA1.
A reference to the document that defines authentication using HMAC-SHA1
would be very helpful here.
And BTW, did you mean HMAC-SHA1-96 mentioned in RFC 4835?
Implementations conforming to this specification SHOULD support
confidentiality for PIM-SM. Implementations supporting
confidentiality MUST support AES-CBC with a 128-bit key.
