Quick and Easy Security Configuration

The SNMPv3 Configuration Wizard offers a complete solution to quick and easy SNMPv3-based configuration of SNMP agents and managers. The Wizard is a stand-alone Java™ application that guides the user through each step of configuring SNMPv3 security, including: establishment of a secure connection for initial configuration, addition of new users, configuration of pass phrases, set-up of fine-grained access control policies, and definition of notification destinations (SNMP-based managers). The Wizard is also an excellent tool for gaining a basic understanding of how the SNMPv3 administrative model works.

Features include:

Specifying Authorization Privileges

Users are assigned a "Profile" or group, which determines the permissions granted to that user. These permissions are defined in an SNMPv3-based access control table stored in the agent LCD. The user profile is associated with a password. As a result, one password supports both authentication (checking the user's identity) and authorization, (discerning which actions the user is allowed to perform, and on what MIB variables.) An optional second Privacy Password is entered if encryption is to be used.

The SNMPv3 Configuration Wizard creates a new user by collecting specific requirements and security options.

The SNMPv3 Configuration Wizard recognizes existing configured users.


The SNMPv3 Configuration Wizard can be packaged with any of the SNMP Research products, including EMANATE® and the SNMP Security Analyzer™.
