NOTE - The IETF has just approved the TLS/DTLS binding of SNMP
as a Proposed Standard.
This will *rapidly* become the dominant method of SNMP support in
infrastructure and end devices (like MFDs) in enterprise networks,
because it leverages the current ubiquitous support for TLS.
This will displace traditional SNMPv3 (hard to deploy and configure).

The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Transport Layer Security (TLS) Transport Model for the Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP) '
<draft-ietf-isms-dtls-tm-14.txt> as a Proposed Standard
This document is the product of the Integrated Security Model for SNMP

This document describes a Transport Model for the Simple
Network Management Protocol (SNMP), that uses either the
Transport Layer Security protocol or the Datagram Transport
Layer Security (DTLS) protocol. The TLS and DTLS protocols
provide authentication and privacy services for SNMP
applications. This document describes how the TLS Transport
Model (TLSTM) implements the needed features of a SNMP
Transport Subsystem to make this protection possible in an
Working Group Summary
This ID is the product of the ISMS WG. The WG went over
several revisions of this document and the document and
all WG last call comments have been resolved. There has
been strong WG consensus to publish this document as
There are two known implementations in progress of the
(D)TLS Transport Model.
Juergen Schoenwaelder (j.schoenwaelder at jacobs-university.de) is
the document shepherd.
Sean Turner is the Responsible Area Director.
