Specifies the authentication password (up to eight characters) or RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm key for one or all interfaces in a specific area or a virtual link.
|vlan-name||Specifies a VLAN name.|
|all||Specifies all VLANs|
|router-identifier||Specifies the router ID of the remote router.|
|area-identifier||Specifies an OSPF area.|
|encrypted||Indicates that the password (or key) is already encrypted (do not use this option).|
|simple-password||Specifies an authentication password (up to 8 ASCII characters).|
|md5_key_id||Specifies a RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm key, from 0-255.|
|md5_key||Specifies a numeric value from 0-65,536. Can also be alphanumeric, up to 26 characters.|
The md5_key is a numeric value with the range 0 to 65,536 or alphanumeric. When the OSPF area is specified, authentication information is applied to all OSPF interfaces within the area.
The encrypted option is used by the switch when generating a configuration file and when parsing a switch-generated configuration file. Do not select the encrypted option in the CLI.
The following command configures RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm authentication on the VLAN subnet_26:
configure ospf vlan subnet_26 authentication md5 32 test
