4. Authentication 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? 5. Confidentiality Implementations conforming to this specification SHOULD support confidentiality for PIM-SM. Implementations supporting confidentiality MUST support AES-CBC with a 128-bit key. As above.
