EOS currently supports BGP message authentication via the TCP MD5 Signature (TCP MD5) option (RFC 2385) to protect the BGP sessions from spoofed TCP segments. However, research has shown many concerns that the TCP MD5 algorithm is cryptographically ineffective with a just simple keyed hash for authentication.
