Asterisk sip md5secret
SIP.conf: device configuration - md5secret
where xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is the md5hash of "<user>:asterisk:<secret>"
Use this option if you don't want to have plaintext-passwords in your sip.conf. You can build the md5hash with
echo -n "<user>:<realm>:<secret>" | md5sum
The <realm> is "asterisk" by default. If you've set it, use the realm you configured.
The -n is important because otherwise echo will add a \n at the end of the string and the md5hash would be totally different.
If there is an md5secret for a user in the config, the secret for that user will be ignored!
To generate the md5-hash for user 1234 with secret abcd you do:
echo -n "1234:asterisk:abcd" | md5sum
and as result you should get
IAX with md5 authorization
Q: HOW TO IMPLEMENT MD5 AUTHORIZATION IN IAX? What else we need to put on both sides? How to generate md5 secret?
A: No need for you to do anything, iax.conf is much easier than sip.conf in this respect. You do not need to md5sum the password.
