Abstract

   This document describes an architecture for describing Simple Network
   Management Protocol (SNMP) Management Frameworks.  The architecture
   is designed to be modular to allow the evolution of the SNMP protocol
   standards over time.  The major portions of the architecture are an
   SNMP engine containing a Message Processing Subsystem, a Security
   Subsystem and an Access Control Subsystem, and possibly multiple SNMP
   applications which provide specific functional processing of
   management data.  This document obsoletes RFC 2571.
