IETF DECLARES SNMPV2 A PROPOSED STANDARD, EPILOGUE TO SHIP SNMPV2 SOFTWARE BY MAY

 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- At the conclusion of the meeting of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in Columbus, Ohio, last week, SNMP Version 2 was accepted as a Proposed Standard. In conjunction with Friday's announcement, Epilogue Technology Corporation announced that it will be ready with SNMPv2-compatible software to OEM customers by early May. SNMPv2 is expected to receive Request for Comment (RFC) designations within the next few days.
 "Now that SNMPv2 has been adopted as a Proposed Standard by the IETF, we are confident we can deliver SNMPv2-compatible software to our OEM customers," said David Preston, vice president and general manager of Epilogue. "The new management and data gathering capabilities offered in SNMPv2 have been stable for some time. The security issues were the only thing holding up adoption as a Proposed Standard. With the security issues resolved, and with Marshall Rose coordinating the effort as the newly elected area director for Network Management, I am confident that SNMPv2 will move smoothly into Draft Status by the November IETF meeting."
 Epilogue has been beta testing its SNMPv2 software for several months. The company plans to upgrade its entire product line to support SNMPv2, including Envoy, Epilogue's portable SNMP solution for OEM developers and system integrators, and Emissary, Epilogue's MIB compiler. A number of Epilogue's OEM customers have already committed to upgrade to SNMPv2. Sumitomo Electric U.S.A., Inc., has developed an SNMPv2-compatible network management application, Dr. Net, using beta versions of Epilogue's Envoy compilable source code. David Preston predicts that most of Epilogue's OEM and system integration customers will migrate to SNMPv2 before the end of 1993.
 "SNMPv2 represents an important evolution in standardized network management," said Dr. Marshall Rose, president of Dover Beach Consulting of Mountain View, Calif., and IETF area director for Network Management. "The addition of bulk retrieval, manager-to-manager interactions, and security features, promise to make it a winning technology for managing heterogeneous networks. It is pleasing to see the early adoption of this technology by the vendor community."
 The Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) accepted both SNMP Version 2 developed by the SNMP Version 2 Working Group and the SNMP Security Protocols developed by the SNMP Security Working Group. The SNMPv2 documentation includes specifications for the coexistence of Version 1 and Version 2 SNMP frameworks, an SNMPv2 Management Information Base (MIB), a Manager-to-Manager MIB, and other details. The new SNMP security documents describe an SNMP administrative model, a party MIB, and different security protocols. Collectively, these 12 new RFCs will take the place of RFC1351, RFC1352, and RFC1353.
