authentication password on ISIS

‎04-26-2018 01:40 PM

Hi community

 

I am trying to deploy a POC on a customer MPLS network, the IGP is ISIS and it is using LDP. Everything was fine until I want to start configuring the ISIS, the authentication on the former device (Huawei) is set with a password with 24 characters and one of them is a quotetion mark (") so I can't configure it on my router, so sad. It is configured in a domain way in the customer network so I can't change it. Can you help me? It is an important oportunity to migrate their network to Juniper routers.

 

Regards

 

Carlos

Hello,

You need to escape " with backslash \:

 

[edit protocols isis]
regress@VMX# set level 2 authentication-key test\"123 

[edit protocols isis]
regress@VMX# commit 
commit complete

[edit protocols isis]
regress@VMX# show 
level 1 disable;
level 2 {
    authentication-key "$9$gN4UHf5F/A0z3/CtpB17-dsoJ"; ## SECRET-DATA

You can reverse-decrypt the above key online to be 100% sure. Here is the output from one of such tools:

You chose to decrypt
Your original string was $9$gN4UHf5F/A0z3/CtpB17-dsoJ
Output text is test"123

HTH

Thx

Alex

Is there any official documentation of the allowed characters that can be used on the isis password?

Hi,

 

key—Authentication password. The password can be up to 1024 characters long. Characters can include any ASCII strings. If you include spaces, enclose all characters in quotation marks (“ ”).
