Status of This Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

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 set of managed objects for Simple Network
   Management Protocol (SNMP) based management of the Baseline Privacy
   Plus features of DOCSIS 1.1 and DOCSIS 2.0 (Data-over-Cable Service
   Interface Specification) compliant Cable Modems and Cable Modem
   Termination Systems.

1.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
   Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
   Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a MIB
   module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58,
   RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580
   [RFC2580].

2.  Overview

   This MIB module (BPI+ MIB) provides a set of objects required for the
   management of the Baseline Privacy Interface Plus features of DOCSIS
   1.1 and DOCSIS 2.0 Cable Modem (CM) and Cable Modem Termination
   System (CMTS).  The specification is derived from the operational
   model described in the DOCSIS Baseline Privacy Interface Plus
   Specification [DOCSIS].

   DOCSIS Baseline Privacy Plus is composed of four distinct functional
   and manageable areas:

   o  Key exchange and data encryption

   o  Cable modem authentication

   o  Multicast encryption

   o  Authentication of downloaded software images

   This MIB module is an extension of the DOCSIS 1.0 Baseline Privacy
   MIB module [RFC3083] (BPI MIB), which is derived from the Operational
   model described in the DOCSIS Baseline Privacy Interface
   Specification [DOCSIS-1.0].  The original Baseline Privacy MIB
   structure has mostly been preserved in the Baseline Privacy Plus MIB.
   Please note that the referenced DOCSIS specifications only require
   that Cable Modems process IPv4 customer traffic.  Design choices in
   this MIB module reflect those requirements.  Future versions of the
   DOCSIS specifications are expected to require support for IPv6 as
   well.
