Title : IS-IS Generic Cryptographic Authentication
Author(s) : M. Bhatia, et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-isis-hmac-sha-03.txt
Pages : 12
Date : 2007-5-1
This document proposes an extension to IS-IS to allow the use of any
cryptographic authentication algorithm in addition to the already
documented authentication schemes, described in the base
specification and RFC 3567.
Although this document has been written specifically for using HMAC
construct along with the SHA family of cryptographic hash functions,
the method described in this document is generic and can be used to
extend IS-IS to support any cryptographic hash function in the

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
