IESG Telechat date: (if known):



This document is an update that fixes a problem with RFC 7360 where
MODULE-IDENTITY was defined as

{ snmpModules 235 } rather than { mib-2 235 } as advised by the MIB Doctors and
recommended by IANA. The rest of the content is identical with RFC 7360.

Major issues:

There is a process issue that the IESG, IANA and the RFC Editor should check
(maybe they already did it) in order to avoid such situations in the future. Is
IANA involved in AUTH 48 last review of the document? If they are not, maybe
 they should be. In this case the MIB Doctors recommendation was implemented by
 IANA in the registry, but the content of the document was not fixed, and
 nobody at AUTH 48 discovered the problem.

Minor issues:
