        Ethernet in the First Mile Copper (EFMCu) Interfaces MIB

Abstract

   This document updates RFC 5066.  It amends that specification by
   informing the Internet community about the transition of the
   EFM-CU-MIB module from the concluded IETF Ethernet Interfaces and Hub
   MIB Working Group to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
   Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 working group.

1.  Introduction

   RFC 5066 [RFC5066] defines two MIB modules:

      EFM-CU-MIB, with a set of objects for managing 10PASS-TS and
      2BASE-TL Ethernet in the First Mile Copper (EFMCu) interfaces;

      IF-CAP-STACK-MIB, with a set of objects describing cross-connect
      capability of a managed device with multi-layer (stacked)
      interfaces, extending the stack management objects in the
      Interfaces Group MIB and the Inverted Stack Table MIB modules.

   With the conclusion of the [HUBMIB] working group, the responsibility
   for the maintenance and further development of a MIB module for
   managing 2BASE-TL and 10PASS-TS interfaces has been transferred to
   the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.3
   [IEEE802.3] working group.  In 2011, the IEEE developed the
   IEEE8023-EFM-CU-MIB module, based on the original EFM-CU-MIB module
   [RFC5066].  The current revision of IEEE8023-EFM-CU-MIB is defined in
   IEEE Std 802.3.1-2013 [IEEE802.3.1].

   The IEEE8023-EFM-CU-MIB and EFM-CU-MIB MIB modules can coexist.
   Existing deployments of the EFM-CU-MIB need not be upgraded, but
   operators using the MIB should expect that new equipment will use the
   IEEE8023-EFM-CU-MIB.

   Please note that the IF-CAP-STACK-MIB module was not transferred to
   IEEE and remains as defined in RFC 5066.  This memo provides an
   updated security considerations section for that module, since the
   original RFC did not list any security considerations for
   IF-CAP-STACK-MIB.
