The Keying and Authentication of Routing Protocols (KARP) working group is designing improvements to the cryptographic authentication of IETF routing protocols. These improvements include enhancing how integrity functions are handled within each protocol as well as designing an automated key management solution.

Operations Model for Router Keying
The IETF is engaged in an effort to analyze the security of routing protocol authentication according to design guidelines discussed in RFC 6518, "Keying and Authentication for Routing Protocols (KARP) Design Guidelines". Developing an operational and management model for routing protocol security that works with all the routing protocols will be critical to the deployability of these efforts. This document gives recommendations to operators and implementors regarding management and operation of router authentication. These recommendations will also assist protocol designers in understanding management issues they will face.
