Usage Guidelines

Use this command to configure authentication for BFD on a VLAN using a password or specify that none is required.

Use the show bfd vlan command to display the authentication setting.

The encrypted keyword is primarily for the output of the show configuration command, so that the password is not revealed in the command output. Do not use it to set the password


The following command configures authentication using the password password:

# configure bfd vlan vlan1 authentication simple-password password
