             Management Information Base for IP Version 6:
                              ICMPv6 Group

Status of this Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This document is one in the series of documents that define various
   MIB object groups for IPv6.  Specifically, the ICMPv6 group is
   defined in this document.

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the IPv6-based
   internets.

   This document specifies a MIB module in a manner that is both
   compliant to the SNMPv2 SMI, and semantically identical to the peer
   SNMPv1 definitions.

1.  The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

   The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework presently consists of three
   major components.  They are:

   o the SMI, described in RFC 1902 [1] - the mechanisms used for
     describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

   o the MIB-II, described in RFC 1213/STD 17 [3] - the core set of
     managed objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

   o RFC 1157/STD 15 [4] and RFC 1905 [5] which define two versions of the
     protocol used for network access to managed objects.

   The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of
   experimentation and evaluation.

1.1.  Object Definitions

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
   defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)
   defined in the SMI.  In particular, each object type is named by an
   OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name.  The object type
   together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a
   specific instantiation of the object.  For human convenience, we often
   use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to refer to the object
   type.

2.  Overview

   This document is the one in the series of documents that define
   various MIB object groups for IPv6. These groups are the basic unit of
   conformance: if the semantics of a group is applicable to an
   implementation, then it must implement all objects in that group.  For
   example, an implementation must implement the TCP group if and only if
   it implements the TCP over IPv6 protocol.  At minimum, implementations
   must implement the IPv6 General group [9] as well as the ICMPv6 group
   defined in this document.

   This document defines the ICMPv6 group of the IPv6 MIB.

6.  Security Considerations

   Certain management information defined in this MIB may be considered
   sensitive in some network environments.

   Therefore, authentication of received SNMP requests and controlled
   access to management information should be employed in such
   environments.
