     Abstract
     
        This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
        for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
        In particular, it provides a common data and format definition for
        events and specifies by what means events are transmitted for
        PacketCable/IPCablecom compliant Multimedia Terminal Adapter devices.
        This memo specifies a MIB module in a manner that is compliant to the
        SNMP SMIv2 [5][6][7].  The set of objects are consistent with the
        SNMP framework and existing SNMP standards.

     1. The Internet-Standard Management Framework
     
       For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
       Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
       RFC 3410 [RFC3410].
     
       Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
       the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
       accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
       Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
       Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a MIB
       module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58,
       RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580
       [RFC2580].
     
     2.  Glossary
     
        The terms in this document are derived either from normal cable
        system usage, or from the documents associated with the IPcablecom/PacketCable
        Specification process.

     3.  Overview
     
        This MIB provides a set of objects required for the management of
        PacketCable/IPCablecom compliant MultiMedia Terminal Adapter (MTA) devices. The
        mechanisms to control the event reporting are defined in this document.
     
     3.1.  Structure of the MIB
     
        This MIB is structured as six groups:
     
        o    Management information that controls the event reporting
             (pktcDevEventControl).
     
        o    Management information that configures the reporting of the various
             programmable events (pktcDevEventConfig).
     
        o    Management information that configures the event throttling control
             (pktcDevEventThrottle).
     
        o    Management information that configures that allows the retrieval of events via
             SNMP (pktcDevEventLocal).
     
        o    Management information that specifies the information sent in traps and
             informs (pktcDevEventNotify).
     
        o    Management information that defines the trap and inform messages
             (pktcDevEventNotification).
     
        Tables within each of these groups group objects functionally.
     
     3.1.1.  pktcDevEventControl
     
        The objects in the pkctDevEventControl group control to where the syslog messages
        will be send to and the clearing of the event log.
     
        pkctDevEvControl -
                     - this object is used to reset the event log and restore the
        default event reporting settings.
     
        pkctDevEvSyslogAddressType -
                              - the type of internet address for the syslog server, it
        is not necessary to support all types.
     
        pktcDevEvSyslogAddress -
                          - the IP-address of the syslog server, this can also be a
        FQDN, although the use of FQDN is discouraged.

     Internet Draft        PacketCable event management MTA MIB         January 2003
     
     
        pkctDevEvSyslogUdpPort -
                          - this object specifies the UDP-port to which the syslog
        messages need to be send.
     
     
     3.1.2.  pktcDevEventConfig
     
        pktcDevEvProgrammableTable - This table configures the reporting of various
        programmable events. By the use of this table it is possible to configure specific
        events to have a specific priority or report a specific event message. Additionaly
        the way of reporting (e.g. local, syslog, .. ) can be controlled.
     
        pktcDevEvFixedTable - This table configures the reporting of fixed events. By the
        use of this table it is possible to configure specific events to have a specific
        priority or report a specific event message. Additionaly the way of reporting (e.g.
        local, syslog, .. ) can be controlled.
     
     3.1.3.  pktcDevEventThrottle
     
        This group of objects controls the throttling of reporting events.
     
     3.1.4.  pktcDevEventLocal
     
        pktcDevEventTable -
                      - this tables contains a log of network and device events that
        can be retrieved by SNMP. The table can be cleared by using pkctDevEvControl.
     
     3.1.5   pktcDevEventNotify
     
        This group specifies the event data for Traps and Informs.
     
     3.1.6   pktcDevEvNotification
     
        The structure for the traps and informs is defined in this group.

     8.  Security Considerations
     
         There are a number of management objects defined in this MIB module
         with a MAX-ACCESS clause of read-write and/or read-create.  Such
         objects may be considered sensitive or vulnerable in some network
         environments.  The support for SET operations in a non-secure
         environment without proper protection can have a negative effect on
         network operations.  These are the tables and objects and their
         sensitivity/vulnerability:
     
                 pktcDevEventControl: This table controls to where events will be sent.
                                      Network operations can be impacted if insufficient
                                                      security is provided
     
                 pktcDevEventConfig:  This table configures the type of events that will be
                                      reported, as such it has an influence on the number of
                                      messages that will be transmitted on the network.
                                                          If not configured properly the network might
                                      get flooded with messages.
     
                 pktcDevEventThrottle: This table controls the rate at which events can be
                                       generated, if not configured properly, the network
                                       load caused by event event messaging might severely
                                                           impact network performance.
     
     
                 Some of the readable objects in this MIB module (i.e., objects
         with a MAX-ACCESS other than not-accessible) may be considered
         sensitive or vulnerable in some network environments.  It is thus
         important to control even GET access to these objects and possibly
         to even encrypt the values of these objects when sending them over
         the network via SNMP.  These are the tables and objects and their
         sensitivity/vulnerability:
     
     
     
     De Ketelaere/Nechamkin         Expires July 2003                   [Page 25]
     

     Internet Draft        PacketCable event management MTA MIB         January 2003
     
         pktcDevEventLocal: This table contains the log of event messages. Read
                                    access to this table might reveal some specific
                                                        information that should be kept confidential.
     
                 SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 did not include adequate security.
         Even if the network itself is secure (for example by using IPSec),
         even then, there is no control as to who on the secure network
         is allowed to access and GET/SET (read/change/create/delete) the
         objects in this MIB module.
     
         It is RECOMMENDED that implementers consider the security features
         as provided by the SNMPv3 framework (see [RFC3410], section 8),
         including full support for the SNMPv3 cryptographic mechanisms
         (for authentication and privacy).
     
         Further, deployment of SNMP versions prior to SNMPv3 is NOT
         RECOMMENDED. Instead, it is RECOMMENDED to deploy SNMPv3 and to
         enable cryptographic security.  It is then a customer/operator
         responsibility to ensure that the SNMP entity giving access to
         an instance of this MIB module, is properly configured to give
         access to the objects only to those principals (users) that have
         legitimate rights to indeed GET or SET (change/create/delete) them.
