I'm trying to get SNMP v3 up and running. Here are commands I've entered thus far. My gola is to get SNMP v3 working and to ensure all communications are secure as possible using 3des and sha communications.
Step 1. snmp-server group iseCisco v3 pri
Step 2. snmp-server user user1 iseCisco v3 encryption auth sha Password123
And here is my explanation of the commands entered.
Step 1. Created a group called iseCisco. Users logging into the group iseCisco will utilize SNMP v3, encryption for data, and will authenticate.
Step 2. Established a user by the name of user1. The user will access data within the group called iseCisco. These task will utilize SNMP v3, authentication and encryption. The secure state (Encryption) will be established using sha encryption. Authentication of user1 will use the password Password123.
Yes, the command entered but am I correct in thinking these things? another question, using this configuration will anything be transmitted in clear text? I believe no. I just want to make sure I understand and can implement what I've learned. (i tried to do the config in packet tracer but... sadly Packet Tracker dose not support SNMP v3.
To check if these commands will work like you wish we need IOS version because snmp configuration commands differ depends on IOS version used.
From what I see group is priv so this means nothing will be transported in clear text since message is encrypted but you need to configure user to actually use it so explicitly define a priv command in snmp user command. In IOS 16.06 it would look like that:
snmp-server user user1 iseCisco v3 auth sha Password123 priv aes 256 Privpass123
