Abstract : Use of SNMP to securely manage distributed networks through firewalls has not been formally described, although features critical to such management are included in SNMP. This document reports on a study performed at Secure Computing Corporation on a method to solve this management function. The project name this study occurred under is Distributed Network Management Security. Slight modifications to the SNMP v2 User-Based Security Model (RFC 1910) and a conceptual redeployment of some of the functions contained within this model provide a basis for this study. The acronym DNMS will be used in this document to refer to the modifications.
