There's a problem in a textbook that is really stumping me.
How would you enhance the RIPv2 protocol to provide a (more) secure and scalable schema for distributing the updates? Describe the steps of a new version of the protocol which still uses a simple password authentication algorithm, but with different keys for each router
I'm not sure what they mean by "different keys". Is it keys in a keyed-MD5 hash or do are they referring to password itself?
Either way I'm not sure how the protocol would work. How would the routers be able to authenticate each other if they don't share anything or know anything about the others? It seems to me like it's not possible
Any direction or clarification on this problem would help. Thanks!
