Good catch Ira,...yes, this is a long-awaited publication.

Looking forward to the "next" long-awaited doc (at least I'm waiting for it :) that enables using NAC mechanisms
to provision SNMP VACM agents...

Pretty soon....SNMPv3 will become easy to deploy :)  Hopefully, that will create a catalyst for more folks using it.
