OSPFv3 Authentication and Encryption (lesson)


I looked at the wireshark trace for the ipsec and do not see the packet being encrypted.


Hello Ram

When looking at IPv6 packets, remember that additional features such as authentication will not show up as a separate header in another layer, but will be displayed inside the IPv6 header. The authentication header is actually an extension to the IPv6 header and can be found as a subsection of the IPv6 section in wireshark. Below is a screenshot of the contents of the very first hello packet in the wireshark capture:


Notice the Authentication Header subsection.

I hope this has been helpful!
