Abstract

This document is one in the series of documents that define various

MIB objects for IPv6. Specifically, this document is the MIB module

which defines managed objects for implementations of the Transmission

Control Protocol (TCP) over IP Version 6 (IPv6).

This document also recommends a specific policy with respect to the

applicability of RFC 2012 for implementations of IPv6. Namely, that

most of managed objects defined in RFC 2012 are independent of which

IP versions underlie TCP, and only the TCP connection information is

IP version-specific.

This memo defines an experimental portion of the Management

Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in

IPv6-based internets.

1. Introduction

A management system contains: several (potentially many) nodes, each

with a processing entity, termed an agent, which has access to

management instrumentation; at least one management station; and, a

management protocol, used to convey management information between

the agents and management stations. Operations of the protocol are

carried out under an administrative framework which defines

authentication, authorization, access control, and privacy policies.

Management stations execute management applications which monitor and

control managed elements. Managed elements are devices such as

hosts, routers, terminal servers, etc., which are monitored and

controlled via access to their management information.

Management information is viewed as a collection of managed objects,

residing in a virtual information store, termed the Management

Information Base (MIB). Collections of related objects are defined

in MIB modules. These modules are written using a subset of OSI's

Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) [1], termed the Structure of

Management Information (SMI) [2].

2. Overview

This document is one in the series of documents that define various

MIB objects, and statements of conformance, for IPv6. This document

defines the required instrumentation for implementations of TCP over

IPv6.

3. Transparency of IP versions to TCP

The fact that a particular TCP connection uses IPv6 as opposed to

IPv4, is largely invisibl...
