 Deprecation of MIB Module NAT-MIB (Managed Objects for Network Address
                           Translators (NAT))

Abstract

   This memo deprecates MIB module NAT-MIB, a portion of the Management
   Information Base (MIB) previously defined in RFC 4008 for devices
   implementing Network Address Translator (NAT) function.  A companion
   document defines a new version, NAT-MIB-V2, which responds to
   deficiencies found in module NAT-MIB and adds new capabilities.

   This document obsoletes RFC 4008.  All RFC 4008 MIB objects are
   included in this version unchanged with only the STATUS changed to
   deprecated, with a non-substantive exception.  The exception was to
   retype internet addresses with a (SIZE (4|16) qualification to get
   rid of a SMILINT warning.

1.  Introduction

   This memo deprecates a portion of the Management Information Base
   (MIB), MIB module NAT-MIB, for devices implementing the Network
   Address Translator (NAT) function.  New implementations are
   encouraged to base themselves upon the second version of this MIB
   module, NAT-MIB-V2, defined in [I-D.ietf-behave-nat-mib-v2].  NAT
   types and their characteristics are defined in [RFC2663].
   Traditional NAT function, in particular is defined in [RFC3022].
   Neither NAT-MIB nor NAT-MIB-V2 addresses firewall functions and
   neither can be used for configuring or monitoring them.

   Section 2 provides references to the Simple Network Management
   Protocol (SNMP) management framework, which was used as the basis for
   the original MIB module definition and its deprecation.  Section 3
   provides motivation for the deprecation of module NAT-MIB and its
   replacement by module NAT-MIB-V2.  Section 4 has the complete NAT-MIB
