Use this command to specify a password-like string for generating an MD5 authentication string. This string is used for verification by the BGP peer group. If the MD5 digest generated by the peer group does not match the MD5 digest generated by the local router, any communication is silently discarded by the peer group.

Use the set form of this command to specify or modify the BGP MD5 password.

Use the delete form of this command to remove the BGP MD5 password.

Use the show form of this command to view BGP MD5 password configuration.
