Creating SNMPv3 Users

For each SNMPv3 user, you can specify the username, authentication type, authentication password, privacy type, and privacy password. After the password is entered, a key based on the engine ID and password is generated and is written to the configuration file. After key generation, the password is deleted from this file.

Note: You can only configure one encryption type for each SNMPv3 user.

To create users, include the user statement at the [edit snmp v3 usm local-engine] hierarchy level:

[edit snmp v3 usm local-engine]user username;

username is the name that identifies the SNMPv3 user.

To configure user authentication and encryption, include the following statements at the [edit snmp v3 usm local-engine user username] hierarchy level:

[edit snmp v3 usm local-engine user username]authentication-md5 {authentication-password authentication-password;}authentication-sha {authentication-password authentication-password;}authentication-none;privacy-aes128 {privacy-password privacy-password;}privacy-des {privacy-password privacy-password;}privacy-3des {privacy-password privacy-password;}privacy-none;
