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.
