Abstract [en]

The last decades the networks has grown and become more and more complex. Equipment of various kind and from many different vendors has been attached to the networks. A standardized management protocol has been developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force during the 1990:ies to simplify management. It is called Simple Network Management Protocol or SNMP. SNMP has found a widespred deployment and is today the dominating network management protocol. The goal of the thesis has been to investigate how and if free software can be used to include SNMP support in applications and systems. The thesis should also make an inventory and comparision of the security mechanisms in different versions of the protocol. A free software package called ucd-snmp has been used to develop SNMP support in a server application that can be used to share information between clients. The thesis has shown that applications and system can be given SNMP support by the use of free software. SNMP is quite useful in system were the set of information to be managed is statical. It is hard to use SNMP in an environment were the amount of information to be managed variates. This is because of the SNMP characteristics, the goal with the protocol is to keep it simple. The third version of SNMP, SNMPv3, supports security mechanisms such as authentication, privacy and timeliness.
