SNMP Research Adds Stronger Cryptography Options to SNMPv3

Knoxville, TN, March 3, 2005 - SNMP Research announces Extended Security Options (ESO) which adds additional cryptography including Triple DES and AES. ESO is consistent with the SNMPv3 standard.

Many security-conscious customers have security needs greater than the authentication and encryption schemes defined in the IETF standards documents for SNMP. In particular, they need stronger cryptography schemes that are more difficult to be compromised. To meet this requirement, SNMP Research introduces Extended Security Options (ESO), an enhanced standard for cryptography using the technology of the SNMPv3 standard. SNMP Research products beginning with release 16.1 (domestic) support the Triple DES Privacy Protocol and the AES Privacy Protocol for SNMPv3 privacy. The AES Privacy Protocol is available for use with 128-, 192-, and 256-bit keys.
