Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it defines a basic set of managed objects for SNMP-
   based (Simple Network Management Protocol) management of the Baseline
   Privacy Interface (BPI), which provides data privacy for DOCSIS 1.0
   (Data-Over-Cable Service Interface Specifications) compliant Cable
   Modems and Cable Modem Termination Systems.  This MIB is defined as
   an extension to the DOCSIS Radio Frequency Interface MIB, RFC 2670.

   This memo specifies a MIB module in a manner that is compliant to the
   SMIv2 (Structure of Management Information Version 2).  The set of
   objects is consistent with the SNMP framework and existing SNMP
   standards.

   CableLabs requires the implementation of this MIB in DOCSIS 1.0 cable
   modems that implement the Baseline Privacy Interface, as a
   prerequisite for DOCSIS 1.0 certification.

1.  The SNMP Management Framework

   The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major
   components:

   o  An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 [1].

   o  Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the
      purpose of management.  The first version of this Structure of
      Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and described in STD
      16, RFC 1155 [2], STD 16, RFC 1212 [3] and RFC 1215 [4].  The
      second version, called SMIv2, is described in STD 58, RFC 2578
      [5], RFC 2579 [6] and RFC 2580 [7].

   o  Message protocols for transferring management information.  The
      first version of the SNMP message protocol is called SNMPv1 and
      described in STD 15, RFC 1157 [8].  A second version of the SNMP

      message protocol, which is not an Internet standards track
      protocol, is called SNMPv2c and described in RFC 1901 [9] and RFC
      1906 [10].  The third version of the message protocol is called
      SNMPv3 and described in RFC 1906 [10], RFC 2572 [11] and RFC 2574
