Information about SNMP

SNMP is an application-layer protocol that facilitates the exchange of management information between network devices. It is part of the TCP/IP protocol suite. This section describes SNMP monitoring, and includes the following topics:

Information About SNMP Terminology

Information About MIBs and Traps

The adaptive security appliance provides support for network monitoring using SNMP Versions 1, 2c, and 3, and supports the use of all three versions simultaneously. The SNMP interface lets you monitor the adaptive security appliance through network management systems (NMSs), such as HP OpenView. The adaptive security appliance supports SNMP read-only access through issuance of a GET request. SNMP write access is not allowed, so you cannot make changes with SNMP. In addition, the SNMP SET request is not supported.

You can configure the adaptive security appliance to send traps, which are unsolicited comments from the managed device to the management station for certain events (event notifications) to an NMS, or you can use the NMS to browse the MIBs on the adaptive security appliance. MIBs are a collection of definitions, and the adaptive security appliance maintains a database of values for each definition. Browsing a MIB means issuing a series of GET-NEXT or GET-BULK requests of the MIB tree from the NMS to determine values.

The adaptive security appliance has an SNMP agent that notifies designated management stations if events occur that are pre-defined to require a notification, for example, when a link in the network goes up or down. The notification it sends includes an SNMP OID, which identifies itself to the management stations. The adaptive security appliance SNMP agent also replies when a management station asks for information.

Information About SNMP Terminology

Table 74-1 lists the terms that are commonly used when working with SNMP:

Table 74-1 SNMP Terminology

Term
Description

Agent

The SNMP server running on the adaptive security appliance. The agent responds to requests for information and actions from the network management station. The agent also controls access to its Management Information Base, the collection of objects that the SNMP manager can view or change.

Browsing

Monitoring the health of a device from the network management station by polling required information from the SNMP agent on the device. This activity may include issuing a series of GET-NEXT or GET-BULK requests of the MIB tree from the network management station to determine values.

Management Information Bases (MIBs)

Standardized data structures for collecting information about packets, connections, buffers, failovers, and so on. MIBs are defined by the product, protocols ,and hardware standards used by most network devices. SNMP network management stations can browse MIBs and request specific data or events be sent as they occur. Some MIB data can be modified for administrative purposes.

Network management stations (NMSs)

The PCs or workstations set up to monitor SNMP events and manage devices, such as the adaptive security appliance.

Object identifier (OID)

The system that identifies a device to its NMS and indicates to users the source of information monitored and displayed.

Trap

Predefined events that generate a message from the SNMP agent to the NMS. Events include alarm conditions such as linkup, linkdown, coldstart, authentication, or syslog events.


Information About MIBs and Traps

MIBs are either standard or enterprise-specific. Standard MIBs are created by the IETF and documented in various RFCs. A trap reports significant events occurring on a network device, most often errors or failures. SNMP traps are defined in either standard or enterprise-specific MIBs. Standard traps are created by the IETF and documented in various RFCs. Standard traps are compiled into the adaptive security appliance software.

If needed, you can also download RFCs, standard MIBs, and standard traps from the IETF website:

http://www.ietf.org/

Download Cisco MIBs and OIDs from the following location:

http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-center/netmgmt/cmtk/mibs.shtml

Download Cisco OIDs from the following location:

ftp://ftp.cisco.com/pub/mibs/oid/oid.tar.gz


Note In software versions 7.2(1), 8.0(2), and later, the interface information accessed via SNMP refreshes about every five seconds. As a result, we recommend that you wait for at least five seconds between consecutive polls.


SNMP Version 3

This section describes SNMP Version 3 and includes the following topics:

SNMP Version 3 Overview

Security Models

SNMP Groups

SNMP Users

SNMP Hosts

Implementation Differences Between Adaptive Security Appliances and the Cisco IOS

SNMP Version 3 Overview

SNMP Version 3 provides security enhancements that are not available in SNMP Version 1 or SNMP Version 2c. SNMP Versions 1 and 2c transmit data between the SNMP server and SNMP agent in clear text. SNMP Version 3 adds authentication and privacy options to secure protocol operations. In addition, this version controls access to the SNMP agent and MIB objects through the User-based Security Model (USM) and View-based Access Control Model (VACM). The ASA 5500 series adaptive security appliances also support the creation of SNMP groups and users, as well as hosts, which is required to enable transport authentication and encryption for secure SNMP communications.

Security Models

For configuration purposes, the authentication and privacy options are grouped together into security models. Security models apply to users and groups, which are divided into the following three types:

NoAuthPriv—No Authentication and No Privacy, which means that no security is applied to messages.

AuthNoPriv—Authentication but No Privacy, which means that messages are authenticated.

AuthPriv—Authentication and Privacy, which means that messages are authenticated and encrypted.

SNMP Groups

An SNMP group is an access control policy to which users can be added. Each SNMP group is configured with a security model, and is associated with an SNMP view. A user within an SNMP group must match the security model of the SNMP group. These parameters specify what type of authentication and privacy a user within an SNMP group uses. Each SNMP group name and security model pair must be unique.

SNMP Users

SNMP users have a specified username, a group to which the user belongs, authentication password, encryption password, and authentication and encryption algorithms to use. The authentication algorithm options are MD5 and SHA. The encryption algorithm options are DES, 3DES, and AES (which is available in 128, 192, and 256 versions). When you create a user, you must associate it with an SNMP group. The user then inherits the security model of the group.

SNMP Hosts

An SNMP host is an IP address to which SNMP notifications and traps are sent. To configure SNMP Version 3 hosts, along with the target IP address, you must configure a username, because traps are only sent to a configured user. SNMP target IP addresses and target parameter names must be unique on the adaptive security appliance. Each SNMP host can have only one username associated with it. To receive SNMP traps, configure the SNMP NMS, and make sure that you configure the user credentials on the NMS to match those configured on the adaptive security appliance.

Implementation Differences Between Adaptive Security Appliances and the Cisco IOS

The SNMP Version 3 implementation in adaptive security appliances differs from the SNMP Version 3 implementation in the Cisco IOS in the following ways:

The local-engine and remote-engine IDs are not configurable. The local engine ID is generated when the adaptive security appliance starts or when a context is created.

No support exists for view-based access control, which results in unrestricted MIB browsing.

Support is restricted to the following MIBs: USM, VACM, FRAMEWORK, and TARGET.

You must create users and groups with the correct security model.

You must remove users, groups, and hosts in the correct sequence.

Use of the snmp-server host command creates an adaptive security appliance rule to allow incoming SNMP traffic.

Licensing Requirements for SNMP

The following table shows the licensing requirements for this feature:

Model
License Requirement

All models

Base License.


Prerequisites for SNMP

SNMP has the following prerequisite:

You must have Cisco Works for Windows or another SNMP MIB-II compliant browser to receive SNMP traps or browse a MIB.

Guidelines and Limitations

Context Mode Guidelines

Supported in single and multiple context modes.

Firewall Mode Guidelines

Supported in routed and transparent firewall modes.

Failover Guidelines

Supported in SNMP Version 3.

The SNMP client in each adaptive security appliance shares engine data with its peer. Engine data includes the engineID, engineBoots, and engineTime objects of the SNMP-FRAMEWORK-MIB.

IPv6 Guidelines

Does not support IPv6.

Additional Guidelines

Does not support view-based access control, but the VACM MIB is available for browsing to determine default view settings.

Does not support SNMP Version 3 for the AIP SSM or AIP SSC.

Does not support SNMP debugging.

When using NET-SNMP Version 5.4.2.1, only supports the encryption algorithm version of AES128. Does not support the encryption algorithm versions of AES246 or AES192.

For SNMP Version 3, configuration must occur in the following order: group, user, host.

Before a group is deleted, you must ensure that all users associated with that group are deleted.

Before a user is deleted, you must ensure that no hosts are configured that are associated with that username.

If users have been configured to belong to a particular group with a certain security model, and if the security level of that group is changed, you must do the following in this sequence:

Remove the users from that group.

Change the group security level.

Add users that belong to the new group.

The creation of custom views to restrict user access to a subset of MIB objects is not supported.

All requests and traps are available in the default Read/Notify View only.

What to Do Next

Choose one of the following:

See the "Using SNMP Version 1 or 2c" section.

See the "Using SNMP Version 3" section.

Using SNMP Version 1 or 2c

To configure parameters for SNMP Version 1 or 2c, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Choose Configuration > Device Management > Management Access > SNMP.

Step 2 (Optional) Enter a default community string in the Community String (default) field.

Enter the password used by the SNMP NMSs when sending requests to the adaptive security appliance. The SNMP community string is a shared secret among the SNMP NMSs and the network nodes being managed. The adaptive security appliance uses the password to determine if the incoming SNMP request is valid. The password is a case-sensitive value up to 32 characters in length. Spaces are not permitted. The default is "public." SNMP Version 2c allows separate community strings to be set for each NMS. If no community string is configured for any NMS, the value set here will be used by default.

Step 3 In the Contact field, enter the name of the adaptive security appliance system administrator. The text is case-sensitive and can be up to 127 characters. Spaces are accepted, but multiple spaces are shortened to a single space.

Step 4 In the ASA Location field, enter the location of the adaptive security appliance being managed by SNMP. The text is case-sensitive and can be up to 127 characters. Spaces are accepted, but multiple spaces are shortened to a single space.

Step 5 In the Listening Port field, enter the number of the adaptive security appliance port that listens for SNMP requests from NMSs; or keep the default, port number161.

Step 6 Click Apply.

SNMP parameters for Versions 1 and 2c are configured and the changes are saved to the running configuration.


What to Do Next

See the "Monitoring SNMP" section.

Using SNMP Version 3

To configure parameters for SNMP Version 3, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Choose Configuration > Device Management > Management Access > SNMP.

Step 2 In the SNMPv3 Users pane, to add a configured user or a new user to a group, click Add. To change user parameters, click Edit. To remove a configured user from a group, click Delete. When you remove the last user in a group, ASDM deletes the group.


Note After a user has been created, you cannot change the group to which the user belongs.


The Add SNMP User Entry dialog box appears.

Step 3 From the Group Name drop-down list, choose the group to which the SNMP user will belong. The available groups are as follows:

Auth&Encryption, in which users have authentication and encryption configured

Authentication_Only, in which users have only authentication configured

No_Authentication, in which users have neither authentication nor encryption configured

Step 4 In the Username field, enter the name of a configured user or a new user. The username must be unique for the SNMP server group selected.

Step 5 Indicate the type of password you want to use by clicking one of the two radio buttons: Encrypted or Clear Text.

Step 6 Indicate the type of authentication you want to use by clicking one of the two radio buttons: MD5 or SHA.

Step 7 In the Authentication Password field, type the password to use for authentication.

Step 8 Indicate the type of encryption you want to use by clicking one of these three radio buttons: DES, 3DES, or AES.

Step 9 If you chose AES encryption, then from the AES Size drop-down list, choose the level of AES encryption to use: 128, 192, or 256.

Step 10 In the Encryption Password field, type the password to use for encryption. The maximum number of characters allowed for this password is 64.

Step 11 Click OK to create a group (if this is the first user in that group), display this group in the Group Name drop-down list, and create a user for that group.

The Add SNMP User Entry dialog box closes.

The SNMPv3 Users pane lists the following information: SNMP Version 3 server group name, name of the user that belongs to the specified group, encrypted password setting, authentication setting, encryption algorithm setting, and the AES size setting.

Step 12 Click Apply.

SNMP parameters for Version 3 are configured, and the changes are saved to the running configuration.


What to Do Next

See the "Monitoring SNMP" section.

Monitoring SNMP

NMSs are the PCs or workstations that you set up to monitor SNMP events and manage devices, such as the adaptive security appliance.You can monitor the health of a device from an NMS by polling required information from the SNMP agent that has been set up on the device. Predefined events from the SNMP agent to the NMS generate syslog messages. This section includes the following topics:

SNMP Syslog Messaging

SNMP Monitoring

SNMP Syslog Messaging

SNMP generates detailed syslog messages numbered 212nnn. Syslog messages indicate the status of SNMP requests, SNMP traps, SNMP channels, and SNMP responses from the adaptive security appliance to a specified host on a specified interface.

For detailed information about syslog messages, see Cisco ASA 5500 Series System Log Messages.


Note SNMP polling will fail if SNMP syslog messages exceed a high rate (approximately 4000 per second).
