Technical Summary

   This document defines a Transport Subsystem, extending the Simple
   Network Management Protocol (SNMP) architecture defined in RFC 3411.
   This document defines a subsystem to contain Transport Models that is
   comparable to other subsystems in the RFC 3411 architecture.  As work
   is being done to expand the transports to include secure transports,
   such as the Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol and Transport Layer Security
   (TLS), using a subsystem will enable consistent design and modularity
   of such Transport Models.  This document identifies and describes
   some key aspects that need to be considered for any Transport Model
   for SNMP.
