One of our students asked me for a concise example of SNMPv3. James, here you go!  This blog has examples and explanations of the features used in SNMPv3.
Older versions of SNMP didn’t provide all the features of SNMPv3. V3 supports a User-based Security Model (USM) for authentication, and a View-based Access Control Model (VACM) to control what that user account may access.  Of course the user accounts don’t represent end users, they are just the configuration elements we configure on the SNMP devices, primarily for creating the connection to or from the SNMP device.

With version 3 we may use the following methods:

  1. noAuthNoPriv: requires username, but no MD5 validation of that user, and no encryption
  2. authNoPriv: requires username, provides MD5 validation, but no encryption
  3. authPriv: You guessed it. Requires username, uses MD5 validation, and encrypts too. Continue Reading
