The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) specification allows for
the protection of network management operations by a variety of
security protocols.  The SNMP administrative model described in RFC
1351 provides a framework for securing SNMP network management.  In
the context of that framework, this memo defines protocols to support
the following three security services; data integrity, data origin
authentication, and data confidentiality.  This RFC is the product of
the SNMP Security Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an IAB standards track protocol for the
Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "IAB
Official Protocol Standards" for the standardization state and status
of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
