RSVP Message Authentication on an MPLS VE Interface

RSVP message authentication using MD5 as described in RFC 2747 is implemented on Extreme devices to prevent spoofing of RSVP messages. Inbound RSVP messages with no Integrity object, or an incorrect integrity object, is dropped by RSVP. All outbound RSVP messages on an interface contain a RSVP integrity object.
