Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets. In particular, it describes a representation of the SNMP parties defined in [8] as objects defined according to the Internet Standard SMI [1]. These definitions are consistent with the SNMP Security protocols set forth in [9].

1. The Network Management Framework

the Internet-standard Network Management Framework consists of three

components. They are:

RFC 1155 which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for describing

and naming objects for the purpose of management. RFC 1212

defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly

consistent with the SMI.

RFC 1156 which defines MIB-I, the core set of managed objects for

the Internet suite of protocols. RFC 1213, defines MIB-II, an
