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.

Deprecation of MIB Module NAT-MIB: Managed Objects for Network Address Translators (NATs)
This memo deprecates MIB module NAT-MIB, a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) previously defined in RFC 4008 for devices implementing Network Address Translator (NAT) function. A companion document defines a new version, NATV2-MIB, which responds to deficiencies found in module NAT-MIB and adds new capabilities.
This document obsoletes RFC 4008. All MIB objects specified in RFC 4008 are included in this version unchanged with only the STATUS changed to deprecated.
