  • SNMPv3 features ?

    I started preparation for SND 642-552 exam. I came across a topic where SNMPv3 is mentioned and a question related to it.

    Question is > Which 3 new features does SNMPv3 provides ?

    options are >

    HMAC with MD5
    AES encryption
    3DES encryption
    HMAC with SHA
    DES 56 encryption
    IDEA encryption

    My answers > AES & 3DES .

    But my answers are wrong. I performed search @ Cisco & found following article.
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...0804a8801.html

    Answers given in the practice questions are >

    HMAC with MD5
    HMAC with SHA
    DES 56 encryption


    in Cisco article for SNMPv3 they already using DES 128 algorithm. SO DES 56 answer ultimately will be eliminated.

    HMAC-MD5-96 authentication level > Given a optional in Cisco article.
    I am in puzzle. Anybody can help out ?

    I also checked and confirmed that SNMPv2 doesnt support AES & MD5 .
