Results of query on auth usage

I received 20 responses which isn't exactly overwhelming :-). All of the responses included usage information for eBGP-MD5 and a few provided information on MD5 for interior protocols. In addition to these 20 I also received a few more with commentary. Conclusion from these messages?

+ only 2 required their peers to use eBGP-MD5
+ many wanted to use it but peers either refused or didn't know how
+ some issues concerning whether this protects you from any "real" threat

So, there you have it. Below are the breakouts and miscellaneous remarks that were included in the email I received. Thanks to all of you who took the time to send me something.


You seem to have lost my note about CSCdw39691 in your summary.

There were notes about problems with other vendors' implementations too but I didn't include them either. But, you're right I probably should have added that product defects have been a factor in folks not deploying this technology :slight_smile:
