OSPFv3 Auth Profiles Tab

  • Network > Virtual Router > OSPFv3 > Auth Profiles
Use the following fields to configure authentication for OSPFv3.
OSPFv3 – Auth Profile Settings
Description
Profile Name
Enter a name for the authentication profile. To authenticate the OSPF messages, first define the authentication profiles and then apply them to interfaces on the OSPF tab.
SPI
Specify the security parameter index (SPI) for packet traversal from the remote firewall to the peer.
Protocol
Specify either of the following protocols:
  • ESP—Encapsulating Security Payload protocol.
  • AH—Authentication Header protocol
Crypto Algorithm
Specify one of the following
  • None—No crypto algorithm will be used.
  • SHA1 (default)—Secure Hash Algorithm 1.
  • SHA256—Secure Hash Algorithm 2. A set of four hash functions with a 256 bit digest.
  • SHA384—Secure Hash Algorithm 2. A set of four hash functions with a 384 bit digest.
  • SHA512—Secure Hash Algorithm 2. A set of four hash functions with a 512 bit digest.
  • MD5—The MD5 message-digest algorithm.
Key/Confirm Key
Enter and confirm an authentication key.
Encryption (ESP protocol only)
Specify one of the following:
  • 3des (default)—applies Triple Data Encryption Algorithm (3DES) using three cryptographic keys of 56 bits.
  • aes-128-cbc—applies the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) using cryptographic keys of 128 bits.
  • aes-192-cbc—applies the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) using cryptographic keys of 192 bits.
  • aes-256-cbc—applies the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) using cryptographic keys of 256 bits.
  • null—No encryption is used.
Key/Confirm Key
Enter and confirm an encryption key.
