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 an
SNMP Transport Subsystem to make this protection possible in an
interoperable way. This Transport Model is designed to meet the
security and operational needs of network administrators. It supports
the sending of SNMP messages over TLS/TCP and DTLS/UDP. The TLS mode
can make use of TCP's improved support for larger packet sizes and the
DTLS mode provides potentially superior operation in environments
where a connectionless (e.g., UDP) transport is preferred. Both TLS
and DTLS integrate well into existing public keying
infrastructures. This document also defines a portion of the
Management Information Base (MIB) for use with network management
protocols. In particular, it defines objects for managing the TLS
Transport Model for SNMP.

This document is a product of the Integrated Security Model for SNMP
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now an Internet Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and
