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.
