A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the RIP Version II Working Group 
of the IETF.                                                               

       Title     : RIP-II Cryptographic Authentication                     
       Author(s) : F. Baker, R. Atkinson
       Filename  : draft-ietf-ripv2-md5-00.txt
       Pages     : 12
       Date      : 11/10/1994

Growth in the Internet has made us aware of the need for improved 
authentication of routing information.  RIP-II provides for unauthenticated
service (as in classical RIP), or password authentication.  Both are 
vulnerable to passive attacks currently widespread in the Internet.  
Well-understood security issues exist in routing protocols [4].  Clear text
passwords, currently specified for use with RIP-II, are no longer 
considered sufficient [5].

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ripv2-md5-00.txt".
							
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
							
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.
							

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
