From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com>, ospf mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, ospf chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'OSPFv2 HMAC-SHA Cryptographic Authentication' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'OSPFv2 HMAC-SHA Cryptographic Authentication ' <draft-ietf-ospf-hmac-sha-07.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Open Shortest Path First IGP Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ross Callon and Adrian Farrel. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ospf-hmac-sha-07.txt
Technical Summary This document describes how the NIST Secure Hash Standard family of algorithms can be used with OSPF version 2's built-in cryptographic authentication mechanism. This updates, but does not supercede, the cryptographic authentication mechanism specified in RFC 2328. Working Group Summary No dissent reported (see PROTO writeup by Acee Lindem). Both WG members and members of the security community have reviewed the document. There was controversy as to how the HMAC-SHA digest would be computed and the subject draft is the agreed upon solution. Document Quality The document has been updated in response to Gen-Art and Sec-dir reviews. There is at least one prototype implementation. Personnel Acee Lindem is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ross Callon is the Responsible Area Director.
