Abstract

� � The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the third

� � version of the Internet-Standard Management Framework, termed the

� � SNMP version 3 Framework (SNMPv3).� This Framework is derived from

� � and builds upon both the original Internet-Standard Management

� � Framework (SNMPv1) and the second Internet-Standard Management

� � Framework (SNMPv2).

� � The architecture is designed to be modular to allow the evolution of

� � the Framework over time.

� � The document explains why using SNMPv3 instead of SNMPv1 or SNMPv2 is

� � strongly recommended.� The document also recommends that RFCs 1157,

� � 1441, 1901, 1909 and 1910 be retired by moving them to Historic

� � status.� This document obsoletes RFC 2570.
