This memo deprecates a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB), MIB module NAT-MIB, for devices implementing the Network Address Translator (NAT) function. New implementations are encouraged to base themselves upon the second version of this MIB module, NATV2-MIB, defined in [RFC7659]. NAT types and their characteristics are defined in [RFC2663]. Traditional NAT function, in particular, is defined in [RFC3022]. Neither NAT-MIB nor NATV2-MIB addresses firewall functions, and neither can be used for configuring or monitoring them.
