Version 3 of the SNMP is an interoperable standards-based protocol defined in RFCs 2273 to 2275. SNMPv3 provides secure access to devices by authenticating and encrypting packets over the network and includes the security features:-

Check out the below link

Hope to help !!

Hi Ganesh ,

Thanx for the reply .

I m configuring SNMP v3 -

2950T-24(config)#snmp-server view readview internet included
2950T-24(config)#snmp-server group readonly v3 auth read readview
2950T-24(config)#snmp-server user richard readonly v3 auth md5 bejtlichpass
Adding an snmpv3 user could cause a bootup delay,
do you wish to continue? (y/n)[confirm] N
2950T-24(config)#exit
2950T-24#

"user could cause a bootup delay "  here bootup dealy is the delay in switch boot or is it anyother impact ...please revert with your input

thanx in advance
