            Applicability of Keying Methods for RSVP Security

Abstract

   The Resource reSerVation Protocol (RSVP) allows hop-by-hop integrity    protection of RSVP neighbors.  This requires messages to be    cryptographically protected using a shared secret between    participating nodes.  This document compares group keying for RSVP    with per-neighbor or per-interface keying, and discusses the    associated key provisioning methods as well as applicability and    limitations of these approaches.  This document also discusses    applicability of encrypting RSVP messages.
