Subject: Protocol Action: 'Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
Context EngineID Discovery' to Draft Standard
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Context EngineID Discovery '
RFC 5343 as a Draft Standard
This document is the product of the Operations and Management Area Working
The IESG contact persons are Dan Romascanu and Ron Bonica.
A URL of this RFC is:
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) version three (SNMPv3)
requires that an application know the identifier (snmpEngineID) of
the remote SNMP protocol engine in order to retrieve or manipulate
objects maintained on the remote SNMP entity.
This document introduces a well-known localEngineID and a discovery
mechanism that can be used to learn the snmpEngineID of a remote SNMP
protocol engine. The proposed mechanism is independent of the
features provided by SNMP security models and may also be used by
other protocol interfaces providing access to managed objects.
This document updates RFC 3411.
Working Group Summary
The document is being advanced from Proposed Standard to Draft
Standard together with RFC 5590, RFC 5591, and RFC 5953.
Two independent implementations of SNMP Context EngineID
Discovery have been developed, tested, and found to be
interoperable. The developers of both implementation agree that
RFC 5343 is sufficiently clear to allow for interoperable
implementations. The implementation report is available at
Dan Romascanu is the responsible Area Director.
