OSPFv3 / EIGRPv6 Authentication
Can anyone explain to me the reasons why OSPFv3 doesnt use authentication due to the authentication inherent in IPv6, but EIGRP does? If it doesnt need it, then why would CISCO have applied it to EIGRP? From Doyles book:
"Removal of OSPF-specific authentication: IPv6 has, using the Authentication extension header, a standard authentication
procedure. Because of this, OSPFv3 has no need for its own authentication of OSPFv3 packets; it just uses IPv6
Why doesn't EIGRPv6 do the same thing?
