6/28/2004 - At the recent HP Software Forum conference in Montréal, Québec, Canada, Hewlett-Packard announced that the upcoming HP OpenView Network Node ManagerTM (NNM) 7.5 release will include enhanced support for secure management using SNMPv3, through enhanced integration with SNMP Research's SNMP Security PackTM product. NNM and SNMP Security Pack have combined to provide support for secure SNMPv3 for several years.
With the NNM 7.5 release, the “extended topology” services included in NNM Advanced Edition (AE) have also been integrated with SNMP Security Pack. This means that all capabilities of NNM are now tightly integrated with SNMP Security Pack, and that NNM functions transparently with devices which have SNMPv3 agents.
SNMP Security PackTM is a protocol adapter product which adds SNMPv3 support to NNM. SNMP Security Pack includes a configuration application to remotely configure SNMPv3 user credentials, access rights, and keys on the managed nodes. SNMP Security Pack is available for all platforms supported by NNM.
The business model remains unchanged: customers will license NNM from HP or an HP Channel Partner, and SNMP Security Pack from SNMP Research or an SNMP Research Channel Partner. HP and SNMP Research continue to work together to provide innovation solutions for standards-based Internet management.
