Abstract

This memo defines a Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet community. In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing tunnels of any type over IPv4 networks. Extension MIBs may be designed for managing protocol-specific objects. Likewise, extension MIBs may be designed for managing security-specific objects. This MIB does not support tunnels over non-IPv4 networks (including IPv6 networks). Management of such tunnels may be supported by other MIBs.

2. Introduction

Over the past several years, there have been a number of "tunneling"

protocols specified by the IETF (see [28] for an early discussion of

the model and examples). This document describes a Management

Information Base (MIB) used for managing tunnels of any type over

IPv4 networks, including GRE [1...
