quagga is open source code, which is available to download from the
internet.  You are free to write whatever code seems appropriate to you.

If you split up what you write into individual components in a git repo,
with appropriate documentation so that the quagga developers can see what
your code does, then there's a good chance it might be committed to the
main line code.

Code which works and which allows quagga users to enable ISIS
authentication using the same command set as cisco routers.

Yes, see the quagga git repository.

The router operating system will be linux / freebsd / solaris / os/x.  The
reference implementation for both interoperability and command-line
compatibility will be a recent version of cisco IOS.
