RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 1. Introduction A network management system contains: several (potentially many) nodes, each with a processing entity, termed an agent, which has access to management instrumentation; at least one management station; and, a management protocol, used to convey management information between the agents and management stations. Operations of the protocol are carried out under an administrative framework which defines both authentication and authorization policies. Network management stations execute management applications which monitor and control network elements. Network elements are devices such as hosts, routers, terminal servers, etc., which are monitored and controlled through access to their management information. Management information is viewed as a collection of managed objects, residing in a virtual information store, termed the Management Information Base (MIB). Collections of related objects are defined in MIB modules. These modules are written using a subset of OSI's Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) [1], termed the Structure of Management Information (SMI) [2]. The Administrative Model for SNMPv2 document [3] defines the properties associated with SNMPv2 parties, SNMPv2 contexts, and access control policies. It is the purpose of this document, the Party MIB for SNMPv2, to define managed objects which correspond to these properties. 1.1. A Note on Terminology For the purpose of exposition, the original Internet-standard Network Management Framework, as described in RFCs 1155, 1157, and 1212, is termed the SNMP version 1 framework (SNMPv1). The current framework is termed the SNMP version 2 framework (SNMPv2). Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 2]

RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 -- textual conventions Party ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION STATUS current DESCRIPTION "Denotes a SNMPv2 party identifier. Note that agents may impose implementation limitations on the length of OIDs used to identify Parties. As such, management stations creating new parties should be aware that using an excessively long OID may result in the agent refusing to perform the set operation and instead returning the appropriate error response, e.g., noCreation." SYNTAX OBJECT IDENTIFIER TAddress ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION STATUS current DESCRIPTION "Denotes a transport service address. For snmpUDPDomain, a TAddress is 6 octets long, the initial 4 octets containing the IP-address in network-byte order and the last 2 containing the UDP port in network-byte order. Consult [5] for further information on snmpUDPDomain." SYNTAX OCTET STRING Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 4]
RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 Clock ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION STATUS current DESCRIPTION "A party's authentication clock - a non-negative integer which is incremented as specified/allowed by the party's Authentication Protocol. For noAuth, a party's authentication clock is unused and its value is undefined. For v2md5AuthProtocol, a party's authentication clock is a relative clock with 1-second granularity." SYNTAX UInteger32 Context ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION STATUS current DESCRIPTION "Denotes a SNMPv2 context identifier. Note that agents may impose implementation limitations on the length of OIDs used to identify Contexts. As such, management stations creating new contexts should be aware that using an excessively long OID may result in the agent refusing to perform the set operation and instead returning the appropriate error response, e.g., noCreation."

RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 -- Definition of Initial Party and Context Identifiers -- When devices are installed, they need to be configured -- with an initial set of SNMPv2 parties and contexts. The -- configuration of SNMPv2 parties and contexts requires (among -- other things) the assignment of several OBJECT IDENTIFIERs. -- Any local network administration can obtain the delegated -- authority necessary to assign its own OBJECT IDENTIFIERs. -- However, to provide for those administrations who have not -- obtained the necessary authority, this document allocates a -- branch of the naming tree for use with the following -- conventions. initialPartyId OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { partyAdmin 3 } initialContextId OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { partyAdmin 4 } -- Note these are identified as "initial" party and context -- identifiers since these allow secure SNMPv2 communication -- to proceed, thereby allowing further SNMPv2 parties to be -- configured through use of the SNMPv2 itself. -- The following definitions identify a party identifier, and -- specify the initial values of various object instances -- indexed by that identifier. In addition, the SNMPv2 -- context, access control policy, and MIB view information -- assigned, by convention, are identified. Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 8]
RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 -- Party Identifiers for use as initial SNMPv2 parties -- at IP address a.b.c.d -- Note that for all OBJECT IDENTIFIERs assigned under -- initialPartyId, the four sub-identifiers immediately -- following initialPartyId represent the four octets of -- an IP address. Initial party identifiers for other address -- families are assigned under a different OBJECT IDENTIFIER, -- as defined elsewhere. -- Devices which support SNMPv2 as entities acting in an -- agent role, and accessed via the snmpUDPDomain transport -- domain, are required to be configured with the appropriate -- set of the following as implicit assignments as and when -- they are configured with an IP address. The appropriate -- set is all those applicable to the authentication and -- privacy protocols supported by the device. Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 9]

RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 partyAuthPrivate OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX OCTET STRING -- for v2md5AuthProtocol: (SIZE (16)) MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION "An encoding of the party's private authentication key which may be needed to support the authentication protocol. Although the value of this variable may be altered by a management operation (e.g., a SNMPv2 Set-Request), its value can never be retrieved by a management operation: when read, the value of this variable is the zero length OCTET STRING. The private authentication key is NOT directly represented by the value of this variable, but rather it is represented according to an encoding. This encoding is the bitwise exclusive-OR of the old key with the new key, i.e., of the old private authentication key (prior to the alteration) with the new private authentication key (after the alteration). Thus, when processing a received protocol Set operation, the new private authentication key is obtained from the value of this variable as the result of a bitwise exclusive-OR of the variable's value and the old private authentication key. In calculating the exclusive-OR, if the old key is shorter than the new key, zero-valued padding is appended to the old key. If no value for the old key exists, a zero-length OCTET STRING is used in the calculation." DEFVAL { ''H } -- the empty string ::= { partyEntry 9 } Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 21]

Depending on the party's authentication protocol, this value may be needed to support the party's authentication protocol. Alternatively, it may be used by a manager during the procedure for altering secret information about a party. (For example, by altering the value of an instance of this object in the same SNMPv2 Set-Request used to update an instance of partyAuthPrivate, a subsequent Get-Request can determine if the Set- Request was successful in the event that no response to the Set-Request is received, see [4].) The length of the value is dependent on the party's authentication protocol. If not used by the authentication protocol, it is recommended that agents support values of any length up to and including the length of the corresponding partyAuthPrivate object." DEFVAL { ''H } -- the empty string ::= { partyEntry 10 } Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 22]

Once an instance of this object is created, its value can not be changed." DEFVAL { 300 } ::= { partyEntry 11 } partyPrivProtocol OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX OBJECT IDENTIFIER MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The privacy protocol by which all protocol messages received by the party are protected from disclosure. The value noPriv signifies that messages received by the party are not protected. Once an instance of this object is created, its value can not be changed."

RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 partyPrivPrivate OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX OCTET STRING -- for desPrivProtocol: (SIZE (16)) MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION "An encoding of the party's private encryption key which may be needed to support the privacy protocol. Although the value of this variable may be altered by a management operation (e.g., a SNMPv2 Set-Request), its value can never be retrieved by a management operation: when read, the value of this variable is the zero length OCTET STRING. The private encryption key is NOT directly represented by the value of this variable, but rather it is represented according to an encoding. This encoding is the bitwise exclusive-OR of the old key with the new key, i.e., of the old private encryption key (prior to the alteration) with the new private encryption key (after the alteration).

RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 partyCloneFrom OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX Party MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The identity of a party to clone authentication and privacy parameters from. When read, the value { 0 0 } is returned. This value must be written exactly once, when the associated instance of partyStatus either does not exist or has the value `notReady'. When written, the value identifies a party, the cloning party, whose status column has the value `active'. The cloning party is used in two ways. One, if instances of the following objects do not exist for the party being created, then they are created with values identical to those of the corresponding objects for the cloning party: partyAuthProtocol partyAuthPublic partyAuthLifetime partyPrivProtocol partyPrivPublic Two, instances of the following objects are updated using the corresponding values of the cloning party: partyAuthPrivate partyPrivPrivate (e.g., the value of the cloning party's instance of the partyAuthPrivate object is XOR'd with the value of the partyAuthPrivate instances of the party being created.)" ::= { partyEntry 15 } Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 26]

DEFVAL { nonVolatile } ::= { partyEntry 16 } partyStatus OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX RowStatus MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The status of this conceptual row in the partyTable. A party is not qualified for activation until instances of all columns of its partyEntry row have an appropriate value. In particular: A value must be written to the Party's partyCloneFrom object. If the Party's partyAuthProtocol object has the value md5AuthProtocol, then the corresponding instance of partyAuthPrivate must contain a secret of the appropriate length. Further, at least one management protocol set operation updating the value of the party's partyAuthPrivate object must be successfully processed, before the partyAuthPrivate column is considered appropriately configured. If the Party's partyPrivProtocol object has the value desPrivProtocol, then the corresponding instance of partyPrivPrivate must contain a secret of the appropriate length. Further, at least one management protocol set operation updating the value of the party's partyPrivPrivate object must be successfully processed, before the partyPrivPrivate column is considered appropriately configured. Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 27]

RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 -- the MIB view database group snmpViews OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { partyMIBObjects 4 } viewTable OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX SEQUENCE OF ViewEntry MAX-ACCESS not-accessible STATUS current DESCRIPTION "Locally held information about the MIB views known to this SNMPv2 entity. Each SNMPv2 context which is locally accessible has a single MIB view which is defined by two collections of view subtrees: the included view subtrees, and the excluded view subtrees. Every such subtree, both included and excluded, is defined in this table. To determine if a particular object instance is in a particular MIB view, compare the object instance's OBJECT IDENTIFIER with each of the MIB view's entries in this table. If none match, then the object instance is not in the MIB view. If one or more match, then the object instance is included in, or excluded from, the MIB view according to the value of viewType in the entry whose value of viewSubtree has the most sub- identifiers. If multiple entries match and have the same number of sub-identifiers, then the lexicographically greatest instance of viewType determines the inclusion or exclusion. An object instance's OBJECT IDENTIFIER X matches an entry in this table when the number of sub- identifiers in X is at least as many as in the value of viewSubtree for the entry, and each sub- identifier in the value of viewSubtree matches its corresponding sub-identifier in X. Two sub- identifiers match either if the corresponding bit of viewMask is zero (the 'wild card' value), or if they are equal. Due to this 'wild card' capability, we introduce Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 40]
RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 the term, a 'family' of view subtrees, to refer to the set of subtrees defined by a particular combination of values of viewSubtree and viewMask. In the case where no 'wild card' is defined in viewMask, the family of view subtrees reduces to a single view subtree." ::= { snmpViews 1 } viewEntry OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX ViewEntry MAX-ACCESS not-accessible STATUS current DESCRIPTION "Information on a particular family of view subtrees included in or excluded from a particular SNMPv2 context's MIB view. Implementations must not restrict the number of families of view subtrees for a given MIB view, except as dictated by resource constraints on the overall number of entries in the viewTable." INDEX { viewIndex, IMPLIED viewSubtree } ::= { viewTable 1 } ViewEntry ::= SEQUENCE { viewIndex INTEGER, viewSubtree OBJECT IDENTIFIER, viewMask OCTET STRING, viewType INTEGER, viewStorageType StorageType, viewStatus RowStatus } Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 41]
RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 viewIndex OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX INTEGER (1..65535) MAX-ACCESS not-accessible STATUS current DESCRIPTION "A unique value for each MIB view. The value for each MIB view must remain constant at least from one re-initialization of the entity's network management system to the next re-initialization." ::= { viewEntry 1 } viewSubtree OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX OBJECT IDENTIFIER MAX-ACCESS not-accessible STATUS current DESCRIPTION "A MIB subtree." ::= { viewEntry 2 } viewMask OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX OCTET STRING (SIZE (0..16)) MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The bit mask which, in combination with the corresponding instance of viewSubtree, defines a family of view subtrees. Each bit of this bit mask corresponds to a sub- identifier of viewSubtree, with the most significant bit of the i-th octet of this octet string value (extended if necessary, see below) corresponding to the (8*i - 7)-th sub-identifier, and the least significant bit of the i-th octet of this octet string corresponding to the (8*i)-th sub-identifier, where i is in the range 1 through 16. Each bit of this bit mask specifies whether or not the corresponding sub-identifiers must match when determining if an OBJECT IDENTIFIER is in this family of view subtrees; a '1' indicates that an exact match must occur; a '0' indicates 'wild card', i.e., any sub-identifier value matches. Galvin & McCloghrie [Page 42]
RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 Thus, the OBJECT IDENTIFIER X of an object instance is contained in a family of view subtrees if the following criteria are met: for each sub-identifier of the value of viewSubtree, either: the i-th bit of viewMask is 0, or the i-th sub-identifier of X is equal to the i-th sub-identifier of the value of viewSubtree. If the value of this bit mask is M bits long and there are more than M sub-identifiers in the corresponding instance of viewSubtree, then the bit mask is extended with 1's to be the required length. Note that when the value of this object is the zero-length string, this extension rule results in a mask of all-1's being used (i.e., no 'wild card'), and the family of view subtrees is the one view subtree uniquely identified by the corresponding instance of viewSubtree."

RFC 1447 Party MIB for SNMPv2 April 1993 viewType OBJECT-TYPE SYNTAX INTEGER { included(1), excluded(2) } MAX-ACCESS read-create STATUS current DESCRIPTION "The status of a particular family of view subtrees within the particular SNMPv2 context's MIB view. The value 'included(1)' indicates that the corresponding instances of viewSubtree and viewMask define a family of view subtrees included in the MIB view. The value 'excluded(2)' indicates that the corresponding instances of viewSubtree and viewMask define a family of view subtrees excluded from the MIB view."
