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.
