Title:
  ha_vrrp_auth_type defaults to PASS which is insecure

Status in neutron:
  Won't Fix
Status in OpenStack Security Advisory:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  With l3_ha enabled, ha_vrrp_auth_type defaults to PASS authentication:

  https://github.com/openstack/neutron/blob/b90ec94dc3f83f63bdb505ace1e4c272435c494b/neutron/conf/agent/l3/ha.py#L28

  which according to http://louwrentius.com/configuring-attacking-and-
  securing-vrrp-on-linux.html is totally insecure because the VRRP
  password is transmitted in the clear.

  I'm not sure if this is currently a serious issue, since if the VRRP
  network is untrusted, maybe there are already bigger problems.  But I
  thought it was worth reporting, at least.
