SNMP, SNMPv2, SNMPv3 and RMON 1 and 2 provides information on these important network management protocols. Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3) is an important milestone in the networking industry, as it offers extremely important security features. Aside from very tearse and technical documentation, no information has been available on SNMPv3 -- until now. William Stallings is well-known in the industry for his writing on network protocols and for his mastery at communicating Standards-type documentation in an intelligent and very readable style. Here he updates his classic book on SNMP and RMON, the Remote Network Monitoring management utility, including all of the new security components of SNMPv3.Every major company uses SNMP as it is the most widely-deployed network management standard for TCP/IP. SNMPv1, even as it shows signs of age, is still the network management protocol of choice; SNMPv2 never gained control of the market as it lacks satisfactory security components. Recently,issued as a set of Internet Standards, SNMPv3, meeting customer demand for stronger security features, is destined to gain widespread use very rapidly, becoming the new dominant network management protocol.
