Configuring RSVP Authentication

Configuring RSVP Authentication

RSVP authentication is configured to protect a node from attacks and improve network security. By default, no authentication mode is configured. Configuring RSVP authentication is recommended to improve device security.

Usage Scenario

RSVP authentication prevents the following problems:
  • An unauthorized node attempts to establish an RSVP neighbor relationship with a local node.

  • A remote node constructs forged RSVP messages to establish an RSVP neighbor relationship with a local node and then initiates attacks to the local node.

RSVP key authentication cannot prevent replay attacks or RSVP message mis-sequence during network congestion. RSVP message mis-sequence causes authentication termination between RSVP neighbors. The handshake function, message window functions, and RSVP key authentication are used to prevent the preceding problems.

CR-LSP flapping may lead to frequent re-establishment of RSVP neighbor relationships. As a result, the handshake function is repeatedly performed and RSVP authentication is prolonged. An RSVP authentication lifetime is set to resolve the preceding problems. If no CR-LSP exists, RSVP neighbors still retain their neighbor relationship until the RSVP authentication lifetime expires.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring RSVP authentication, configure an RSVP-TE tunnel.
